My practice as an artist has been characterized by a sustained exploration of the complexities of personal identities and their intimate, familial, cultural and political ramifications. My projects have embraced aesthetic strategies ranging from classic documentary, to fictional narratives, community based initiatives and collaborations with other artists.
