I am an interdisciplinary artist, filmmaker, thinker, relationalist, writer, performer, experimental cartographer and narratologist based in Oakland, California. My research-based practice incorporates diverse materials, mediums, and technologies to investigate the conception that we create our own realities in relation to our surroundings. I explore the spectrum that exists between constructed binaries such as truth and fiction, physical space and human perception, public and private spaces. The outcomes of my work take different forms including installations, experimental narrative videos, performances, and public interventions.
Over the course of my career I have worked in visual art, film & tv, and theatre. Additionally, my background in music, architecture and dance substantially inform my work. A passionate educator, I have taught contemporary art classes and digital media / filmmaking courses, developing much of the curricula myself. Currently I am Visiting Assistant Professor of Art Practice at St Mary’s College. I also volunteer in my community as an arts organizer and serve on the board of directors of Aggregate Space Gallery.
