I'm a Los Angeles-based artist who, for more than 15 years, has been making video, animation, print and sculpture for exhibition in galleries and museums in the US and Europe. I originally developed this website as a platform for selling Abduction eau de parfum and artwork related to my 2016 art installation that dealt with the subjects of UFOs and alien abduction.

Over the past few years I’ve introduced scent-making into my creative life and have begun to produce limited runs of perfumes for sale. Rather than creating a new platform, I decided to expand the scope of this site as “the eyes are always there” seemed to fit my art practice with image-making at its center.
