"The baseball cards used in my collage work are all from my own childhood collection. In short, the reason I began collecting was to fit in. After my parents divorced, I moved to a different school. I was a soccer player, but all the boys in my new school were little-leaguers and they all traded baseball cards together. So, for me, collecting became a means of acceptance."
"Much of my work is an ongoing collection of exorcisms, casting out the fears, icons, and suppressed visions implanted by American Culture; often expressed in imagery that is as much satirical as it is socially relevant."
