I am an interdisciplinary artist exploring the intersection of art and technology. My artistic practice is informed by my background as a violinist and fine artist and explores ways in which artistic expression can be augmented through technology.

I am interested in inventing new processes of making by hybridizing emerging and established art-forms. To date, my work spans installation, sculpture, still image, drawing, and performance. By working within these mediums, it is my intent to grow a multi-faceted approach to experiential art.

My practice iterates on the expressive agency of form catalyzed with software, sound, light, and space. Recently, my focus has been on creating installations involving multiple layers of light on intricate structures, taking a variety of media and transforming them into spacial experiences.
