having spent most of my career as a commercial director/cameraman, i was constantly surrounded by personnel asking questions about the project at hand and the equipment needed to get the images onto motion picture film. although i had considerable creative freedom with clients like neiman marcus, nike, american airlines and home depot and earned national and international recognition for my work, i realized that working alone was the ultimate freedom. this began my experimenting with low tech as a better way to communicate. two self-produced experimental shorts, “box stick hole” and “badheaded girlie boy”, secured my place as a texas artist and eventually lead me back to still photography which i had rejected as too lethargic a medium as a preteen. more recently “where’s the oil? a snapshot”, a three screen video installation at good children gallery, was shot with no crew at all. aside from the abstracts, the accompanying photographs were all shot on my phone. i am currently living in the de saix neighborhood of new orleans with no dogs or cats. I was very pleased with I Don't Understand being shown at Arthur Roger Gallery and screened at the Dallas Video Festival. Also, I decided on a way to display my Sleepers photographs at Barristers Gallery on St. Claude as 35" squares with large metal frames. Currently I'm testing new gallery work and prepping for a full length music documentary.
