ABOUT

To understand the world, you must first understand a place like Mississippi.

– WILLIAM FAULKNER

Mississippi is the worst thing that ever happened to me, in the best way possible.

. . . . .

A former film and television star held our nation’s highest political office when I was a teenager. Even now I haven’t learned to stop worrying or love the bomb. In the 80s I grew up staring at John Carpenter films, and kudzu. In the 90s I stumped my toe on the punk rock and discovered underneath it a DIY ethic that was really no different than being Mississippi. More recently I pulled back the curtain to find myself an expatriate sharing drinks while exchanging perspectives with Guy Debord on his, this, Society of the Spectacle. I love Mississippi – a land tempered by haunted spirits, lost souls, and all too infrequent victory. This is the lens I make my work through.

Enjoy and have a good life, but stay true to yourself.
