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, makers, and musicians to understand how we might live and move in a technologically mediated world with humor, grace, creativity, and care.
I write, organize, curate, and teach about new and old media, cultural histories and philosophies of technology, design, disability, cities, literature, comics, animation, sound, circuses and more. I am Director of Programs at Leonardo/ISAST. I'm on the board of Immersive Arts Alliance. I've recently served as a lecturer in Visual & Critical Studies at California College of the Arts, lead 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 a Geballe Fellow at the Stanford Humanities Center, where I also led the Graphic Narrative Project.
