In every neighborhood, there is someone who makes the Arts a part of their life, and our community. You'd be surprised to discover how many different people use the arts to improve the quality of life in our hometown. EAT MORE ART! VEGAS will feature them regularly in our series "10 Bites."
What kinds of art do you enjoy, create, or perform in?
Absurd re-imaginings of moments, interactive art, paintings, sculptures, performances that push the boundaries.
Why do you do it?
Gives my life meaning. Art is what keeps me going. And I want to make sure that art keeps getting better and more accessible for those who lack beauty and substance in their lives.
What’s your favorite production/performance experience so far?
Probably the reflection chamber, done in April 2019. It was a guided meditation within a mirrored helmet. All about integrating the art and the audience and I feel it went really well. Had some very emotional reactions.
What jobs have you done other than being an artist, or what do you do when you are "at work?"
I've done so many sales jobs, door to door stuff mostly. Was even an ice cream truck driver for a time.
What is an Arts experience that you will never forget or a memorable response to your work?
Three bro dudes were ambivalent about the reflection chamber but they each took a turn and came out speechless. I think it was the first time they ever self-reflected and I think it really did something for them.
What would you be doing if you weren't performing, creating, or enjoying the Arts in Las Vegas?
I wouldn't. It's compulsive. I've got to work.
Name something you love about Las Vegas, and why.
I enjoy the nightlife quite a bit.
What’s the best piece of advice you’ve been given?
No one knows what you started trying to make, so they'll never view it how you do.
What superpower would you have and why?
Shape shifting cause duh, its the best one.
Any future projects or events that you're looking forward to?
I'm working on something really wild, never done before. Might be a huge flop or a success. Very excited to get further into it. check my work out @pnbillustrations @sbbclub or on youtube at "saladboibookclub"
