I am preoccupied with the social realm and make platforms, personas, and performances to look at why we need each other and meaning. I deeply enjoy working with other artists and often integrate administrative tactics and systemic thinking into projects. They often assume the form of established infrastructures that I shift to meet a purpose. Most recently, I've exhibited at 601Artspace in New York and am organizing an outpost of Terrain Biennial in Newburgh, NY, fall 2019.

I have been a resident at The MacDowell Colony, The Wassaic Project, and the Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts’s SHIFT Residency; a participant in LMCC’s Swing Space and a local inbound resident at apexart; and received a Brooklyn Arts Council grant. The Work Office (TWO) was produced five times in New York, 2009–11, including in Times Square with the Times Square Alliance. Iron Maiden Artist Tours ran 2011–13 with six tours and artists. I sometimes perform or create work for nonart venues. My work has been included in exhibits at the Arts Incubator and Crossfit Commitment in Chicago, IL; The Wassaic Festival, NY; CONFLUX 2012, New York, NY; Tyler School of Art, Philadelphia, PA; the Bronx River Art Center, Bronx, NY; Steven Wolf Fine Arts, San Francisco, CA; and Printed Matter, New York, NY.
I grew up in four different states and call the neurotic East Coast, in general, my home. My BA in English and studio art was graciously given by Clark University in Worcester, Massachusetts, and an illuminating MFA in photography was had at San Francisco Art Institute. I currently work and make work in Newburgh, NY and grow social, cultural, and physical roots as much as possible.
