I’m an artist and creative organizer working across experimental film, sound composition and social practice. My interests include the politics of sensory perception and consciousness, cultural memory, visuality and documentation, and our relationships to landscape and environment. Usually, I work with landscape photography, field recordings, and audio collage, and I take a lot of rhythmic & structural inspiration from both dance and music theory/composition. (Some places my work has screened are LA Filmforum, Slamdance, Alchemy Film Festival, ICDOCS, Fracto, and Chicago Underground Film Festival.) My current film project studies darkness, dreaming, and autonomy. 

I’m also the co-creator and co-organizer of virtual care lab, a series of participatory creative gatherings and online portals exploring collective care, commoning and mutuality in virtual space. Previously, I taught at CalArts in experimental film & sound composition, and I’m currently the programming & operations manager at Zócalo Public Square, an online magazine and public events series. I’m usually in Los Angeles.
