I'm an artist and designer living and working in San Francisco.
My visual work includes a variety of projects from interactive electronic sculpture to digital drawing to functional design. I look for ways to apply themes of intentional inefficiently, malfunction, spirituality, danger, and asymmetry with low-fi, often-interactive electronics. I received my MFA from Mills College in Oakland and my BFA from the University of Iowa. I've participated in exhibitions at the Headlands Center for the Arts, Root Division, the Santa Clara Museum of Art, and the School For Poetic Computation in NYC. I was a recipient of a Creative Code Fellowship sponsored by Gray Area and Stamen in San Francisco. I was featured on KQED’s SPARK, a local program highlighting artists in the Bay Area. In 2015, I published a graphic novel of short stories about travels in Senegal, Mali and Ethiopia. In the summer of 2016 I was a resident at 72u in Los Angeles.
I’m an instructor in the Technical Arts department at Lick-Wilmerding High School. I developed the LWHS Electronics and Circuits program, which includes : Analog and Digital Circuits; Device Invention; and Sustainable Energy. I helped the Technical Arts program integrate various digital fabrication processes and tools including 3D digital rendering; CNC machining; and 3D printing. For 7 years I was one of the leaders of the LWHS-Drew Senegal service-learning trip, founded in 2007, which gives students an opportunity to apply building skills and participate in a cultural exchange while in a rural village.
