A recent graduate from The Massachusetts College of Art & Design, Dillon continues his art practice as a video producer, visual artist, and sponsored skateboarder. Dillon has been Skateboarding and making films since he was 6 years old, and feels just as passionately, if not more, about both things since he began doing them! He values the beauty in improvisational movement on and off a skateboard. He incorporates this in his fine art films, which are high energy, playful and dance oriented. These themes parallel the same feelings he has when he in on a Skateboard.

He has also recently traveled to San Francisco, LA , Miami, New York and Montreal for a skateboarding video he is starring in, premiering late June.
