Tell me about yourself
I am an artist, user experience designer, and educator. In my artwork, I express poetry through a variety of forms—video, digital media, interactive performance, and print—that consciously engage with the affordances of each medium. In a time of chatbots, essays generated by algorithms, and comments mined for advertising opportunities, I believe that re-enchanting our connection to both language and technology is essential to maintain our poetic experience.
My design work includes experience design and UX research for clients such as the US Holocaust Memorial Museum, Samsung, Nike, Sesame Workshop, Martha Stewart, Lego, as well as a number of start-ups.
I teach both theory and practice-based courses across design, technology, and media at The New School, New York University, and Lesley University.
I have university degrees in Cognitive Science, Interactive Telecommunications, Literary Arts. I also have a first-degree black belt in Aikido.
