My work is my adventurer’s journal.

To me the process is part of the performance, the performance part of the process.

When creating, I like to do as much as I can by myself.

The practical obstacles often become an impulse for the artistic process.

My roots are in breakdance,

and the body in motion is a key element in my work.

I am drawn to use performance theatre as a way to conduct meditative-like exercises.

How can a state of meditation provoke imagination,

to shape new perspectives on our human lives.

I hope you question my theories.

As I believe it is our exchange that matters- not who is stating the facts.

For me there is no separation between you and I.

We both are particles of the same phenomenon; that what we call Life.

To find out I’m wrong means to sink into a greater level of understanding.

I believe truth is not to be held,

but to be chased infinitely.

As a collective game for us to enjoy

during our ongoing movement on this spinning earth.
