With origins in the rural Midwest, the artist studied music and philosophy in a liberal arts education before traveling to Italy and becoming immersed in the works of the Renaissance. A return to the US brought the pursuit of graduate work in music and cinema, with an eventual arrival on the west coast via the prestigious University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts. In addition to full-time work in photographic fine art, SameSource output has included notable works as a recording artist, writer, and filmmaker. SameSource is represented by Gallery 825 and Fabrik Projects Gallery in Los Angeles, and Sin City Gallery in Las Vegas.
