I am an artist and writer based in Brooklyn, NY and Rochester, NY.
I have often used expressionistic narrative strategies to trace experiences of desire, drive, and the impact of modern systems of power on the psyche. My most recent work resists psychic formulations through ekphrastic and other translational strategies. I have exhibited my work internationally.
In my projection design for live theater and music, I resist using video as scenery and treat it as an integrated part of the dramaturgy.
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 academic research interests have included narrative video art, narrativity in storytelling and representation, the intersection of documentary and fiction practices, and the empirical subject.
I am an Assistant Professor of Fine Art in the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology, where I teach concepts, theories, and practices of video, photography, and related media.
