Preoccupied with the social realm, I make platforms, personas, performances, and documentation to look at why we need each other and meaning. I deeply enjoy working with other artists and consider the exchange around their work a part of my work. Most recently, I've produced Terrain Biennial Newburgh 2019 + 2021 (with Hannah Walsh des Cognets), contributed to Shari Diamond's Quarantine Zines, and exhibited at 601Artspace in New York.

I've been a resident at The MacDowell Colony, The Wassaic Project, and SHIFT Residency; a participant in LMCC’s Swing Space and a local inbound resident at apexart; received grants from Arts Mid-Hudson, Orange County Arts Council, Brooklyn Arts Council, and Black Rock Arts Foundation. The Work Office (TWO) was produced five times in New York, 2009–11, including with the Times Square Alliance. Iron Maiden Artist Tours ran 2011–13 with six tours and artists. I like performing or creating work for nonart contexts like Crossfit Commitment, Chicago, IL and private homes. My work has been included in traditional art spaces like Arts Incubator and A+D Gallery, Chicago, IL; 601Artspace, Printed Matter, Bronx River Art Center in New York, NY; the Wassaic Festival, NY; Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA; and Steven Wolf Fine Arts, San Francisco, CA.
I'm a queer artist raised by art + english teachers in various US cities and relied on my poetic heart in order to make sense of anything, for better and for worse. A BA in English and studio art was mercifully given by Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, and an illuminating MFA in photography was had at San Francisco Art Institute. I am in Newburgh, NY, growing social, cultural, and physical roots as much as possible.
