My goal as a photographic artist is to encourage people to examine the relationship between their perceptions of reality and visual relationships between sexuality and gender. Oftentimes disconnects between the two are based upon misunderstandings, misrepresentations, and logical fallacies. By using self-portraiture, cataloguing, data collection, irony, and a wry sense of humour, I seek to engage the viewer in a discourse that opens up the possibilities that visual relationships may not represent what they appear to.

Not all is the way that we are led to believe. Not all connections that we think we see even exist. As a race we strive to bring order and structure to things, and we often look for connections where there are none to be found. My work explores and examines these extant connections and their viability.
