I am an artist, writer, and designer who lives and works in New York City and Rochester, NY. 
Artistically, I most often work in the mediums of video and drawing, the former in a post-conceptual
narrative fashion, and the latter as a way of isolating objects in order to expose their socio-politcal
meanings. Themes such as consciousness, science, religion, love, and the virtual run through my work;
most recently, my work focuses on modernist idealism, the nuclear family, and the intersection of 
democracy and global capitalism. In my projection designs for live theater and music, I eschew 
the use of video as scenery and strive to make it part of the dramaturgy. 
My work has been exhibited internationally.

In 2009, I was awarded a fellowship from the School of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences 
at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute to pursue a Ph.D. in Electronic Art, which I completed in 2013. 
I also have an MFA in Film/Video from Bard College, and a BA in Film Studies and Cultural Studies
from the University of Minnesota—Twin Cities. My research interests include narrative video art, 
narrativity in storytelling and representation, the intersection of documentary and fiction practices, 
and the representation of the spiritual in cinema. I am an Assistant Professor of Fine Art in the School 
of Photographic Arts and Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology.
