12 UNITS / 2014
I live in a 12 unit apartment complex. I've lived in many apartments but this one is by far the most unique because no one ever says hi to each other in this building. I met almost everyone via mail and packages out by the mailbox. I hardly know these people, yet live very closely, so I started to observe my neighbors. This is a semi fictional voyeuristic observation of apartment tenants living in San Francisco. Self published, 28 pages, edition of 200.

THE SECRET KNOTS / 2011
I enjoy studying people in public places and create their lives in my head. Even though most of the people I have created are from my imagination, I have a feeling that I know them unconsciously. I believe that everyone is connected in secret knots.
