I am a multidisciplinary artist and educator. I began my studies in traditional media, exploring drawing, painting, and fibers. From there I went on to explore digital media through my MFA in Time Arts. My thesis research explored the relationships between controversial technologies, media, and user interactivity. I thrive on research and am constantly looking to learn new media and technologies such as 3-D printing, drones, robotics, programming, and projection mapping. Currently my artwork is exploring sociopolitical topics on media and technology utilizing user interaction through controllers and gestures.
I enjoy teaching and the ability to share my skills and expertise with those who are first starting out or returning for more knowledge. Teaching keeps me on my toes and I appreciate the fresh perspectives I gain by working with budding learners. I love the student enthusiasm and sense of discovery that come with working in the classroom; it rejuvenates my passion for the topics I teach, and encourages me to continue my own research to continually give back to the community.
