I was contacted by BBC (British Broadcasting Company) World News and asked for an interview about my laser petroglyph artwork. On Friday, April 15, BBC Producer Joanne Whalley and her crew met with me at Painted Rock Petroglyph Site in Arizona USA and then traveled to my house to continue the interview and film my process of converting petroglyph photographs into laser art. The interview will be aired on BBC World News in July.

My work centers around preservation and interpretation of petroglyphs using lasers and video projection. I have won seven international awards for my laser artwork and it will be available at SWAIA (Southwestern Association for Indian Arts) in Santa Fe in August.

Awesome! Will you be in Santa Fe with your art? I might have to check it out. If you ever find yourself in the Ancestral Puebloan lands, give me a holler. I might have to try this out myself as there are huge petroglyph walls near my hometown.

Awesome man. Now I won't be the lone active member in NM. I can probably actually stop by to check your stuff out too. Been to SWAIA a while ago, but it'll be awesome to see your stuff there.

As for the details on the petroglyph walls, PM sent.

That's really interesting. Using lasers for preservation sounds so cool. You got a link to the interview so I can find out more?
