About

I am a Honolulu born, raised, and based sculptor. I studied studio art at Kapiolani Community College and the University of Hawai’i at Manoa, but the bulk of my knowledge has been informed through an apprentice and partnership with Kaili Chun that began in 2006.

My personal practice is based primarily in abstract wooden forms, using data and mathematics as the foundation structures to explore anthropological spaces. In collaboration and assisting Kaili Chun and other artists, I have explored a broader series of materials and forms while designing and producing larger installation art.
