On March 6th I showed a work paired up with Lorena Espitia's work for "SCROLL", 1-night exhibitions where a painting and a film faceoff. We'll be switching mediums the following week, same place, same time: @ The Reef, Suite #1150, 11th Floor, 1933 S. Broadway, LA 90007. The piece I'll FINALLY be debuting in full is "Drive Drumming" a collaboration with Manuel Lima.

Come listen to my awkward introduction to the Opposable Thumbs Podcast where I try to keep my project a secret, while tampering my excitement to talk with Rob Ray and Taylor Hokanson by pretending to be able to talk smoothly about... stuff.

Each episode is spurred by a challenge given to them by a previous guest and everyone has two weeks to respond. The prompt for this week was "Fermentation"

My submission to an Opposable Thumbs Podcast challenge (for their 1 year anniversary)
