He had a major exhibition at The Galleries at Moore in 2017, was commissioned to create a tile plan for the new Project HOME Residence for Homeless LGBTQ Youth in 2018, and was named a prestigious NCECA Emerging Artist in 2019.

CRANK harvests the visual lexicon of Art & Advertising. Literature, Movies, Music from the dawn of time until today are all fair game as tools to describe existing at the beginning of the twenty-first century.

In a very short time, CRANK has garnered critical praise and acquisitions by well-respected curators and museum collections. CRANK debuted last winter at Art Miami Wynwood 2019.
