Born and raised in the midwest of the United States, I spend most of my time wrestling with common ideas and attitudes that surround me. Religion and gender are two big ones, and are issues that in some form or another are present in every aspect of the world I exist in every day. Often with much conflict. So, as I’ve always done, I lean on art, nonsense, and introspection to try and work my way through their various nuances. Less to change the world than to just understand them. Maybe after I understand them, maybe then I can change anything, and not just be a part of the problem.
