I love writing scary or bizarre stories. I like to frighten people, make them cringe, feel uncomfortable, or feel confused with my writing.
I shoot photography centered on industrial expressionism and urban decay, you can see it at www.ceaseandexist.com .
I paint weird things, both digitally and traditional media.I like making monster toys from recycled material in my spare time. I also make clay sculptures.
