Stories, in their nature, tell history [his-story]. These stories, no matter their origin; a dream, a vision, etc., become fascinating worlds for me to explore.

The mixing of these worlds become narratives that mysteriously connect with stories of creation, war, ancient cultures, and religion. As I continue to meditate, connections continue to reveal themselves. During these revelations, I simultaneously look inward into myself, and the harsh history of my ancestors.

I find a satisfaction in creating the characters that spawn from these stories. Sometimes I like to refer to them as “Deities.” Each one represents something unique, some part of my vulnerable self, and our collective, fragile existence.

“Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.

Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source.
This source is called darkness.

Darkness within darkness.
The gateway to all understanding.”
-Tao Te Ching

"Life is more than what meets the I and I.”
-Saul Williams
