Give us a brief description of you an your work.

My work is a culmination of pastry, painting, photography and illustration. I like to think of it as fine art collage with a breakfast theme.

What’s your goal as an artist?

My goal is to express my point of view and allow my artwork to evolve as the world changes. I know not everyone will like my art but everyone should eat breakfast…it’s the most important meal of the day.

Where do you draw inspiration from?

My Mom was actually the person who got me hooked on breakfast food. I’ve drawn inspiration from the the Kix and Life commercials back in the 80’s. I also owe quite a bit of my success to the good folks at Hostess and Little Debbie for making such delicious snacks.

What was the last full album you listened to?

Hot Chip; Made in the Dark

Scale of 1-10 (low-high), Picasso’s Blue Period?


Ansel Adams or Henri Cartier-Bresson?
