Describe for people some of your various projects and where they can generally see them:
For special fx I worked on a horror film last year that is now available for viewing and purchase on Amazon. I just finished up a trailer for an upcoming film as well. I have been creating horror, oddity, and Wiccan crafts for years which can be viewed on Facebook and Instagram. I am currently working on a proper website.

How long have you been doing your art?
I’ve been doing art in general since I was a child, but became serious with special fx and making jewelry when I was 18.

What are some of your favorite photography projects/shows?
Photographing 3Teeth, Grendel, Pig, were real honors, I love doing burlesque photography as I consider it the most difficult. Capturing beauty and grace amid an explosive or smoldering movement.

Seeing the customers compliment and purchase my work

People may not be aware that all of my artistic abilities are self taught without the benefit of any formal schooling.

My advice is to make decisions at the lowest level possible to maximize efficiency.
