Ocean Park, CA 1975

I am the chancellor of the HENRY BROS STUDIO, an elastic platform from which I have been able to engage in a variety of art-making activities, of my own and with or for other artists, for the past 35 years.  I received an M.F.A. in intermedia from the Otis Art Institute and have since worked mostly in film and video. My work deals with nascent and superficial aspects of thought in relation to language and images and has been exhibited in galleries, film and media-art festivals, and museums.
