(Born Ithaca, New York)

I am a media artist, curator, and archivist interested in hybrid nonfiction forms. My research investigates the archive as a platform for 21st Century storytelling, and is informed by a background in documentary production and literary journalism. I am currently working on an multimedia documentary inspired by a collection of newly digitized home movies produced by Muriel Orr-Ewing at the Grove Finishing School for Young Ladies, where she served as headmistress from 1947-1969. I received my PhD in Electronic Art from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (2021), and an MFA from the Department of Media Study at the State University of New York at Buffalo (2006). From 2006-2017, I served as Media Arts Director at Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center in Buffalo. I currently work at The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, New York, where I live with my partner and frequent collaborator, composer and media artist J.T. Rinker.
