I write, organize, curate and and teach about new and old media, literature, comics, animation, sound, circuses and more. I am a Lecturer at California College of the Arts, and a Curator with CODAME Art & Tech, and a SOMArts Curatorial Resident 2019-2020. I hold a Ph.D. in Modern Thought and Literature from Stanford University, where I researched electronic gesture across the arts. At Stanford, I was recently a Geballe Fellow at the Stanford Humanities Center. I also coordinated the Graphic Narrative Project, a research workshop supported by the Stanford Humanities Center.
As the choreographer William Forsythe has insisted, "if dance only does what we assume it can do, it will expire." My work brings that belief into our embodied encounters with new media and technology.
I work with artists, dancers, scholars, technologists, coders and musicians to understand how we might live and move in a technologically mediated world with humor, grace, deliberation, responsibility, innovation and a sense of fun.
I have taught in India, China and Australia, backpacked through Asia and Latin America and performed in the occasional circus show as a hula-hooper.
