My recent work focuses on series in different media, exploring various themes in my exploration of iconic California imagery.

My MashUp, Water’s Edge and Autopia paintings combine photography and digital drawing with acrylic painting. My De-Constructing Desire series uses sculpture, video, photography and painting to probe gender politics and my experience in the Hollywood and modeling worlds.

I graduated from Stanford University and attended UCLA Graduate School of Film and Television.  Prior to my career as an artist, I worked as a television executive (Spotlight, Showtime, CBS, Hearst Entertainment) and as an independent film producer, producing eight television films. After leaving the entertainment business, I was an executive in new business development for the Los Angeles Times and the EVP in a technology startup that invented paid internet search, Overture (now Yahoo Search Services).

My civic projects include Board chairman of River LA, and working on several downtown revitalization projects.  I am a collector of Los Angeles-based artists,  a founding contributor to Los Angeles MOCA, a former member of the Getty Museum Photo Council and LACMA LENS.
