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 an am constantly looking ot learn new media and technologies such as 3D printing, drones, robotics, programming, and projection mapping. Currently my artwork is exploring sociopolitical topics on media and technology utilizing user interaction through contollers 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.
