• I am an Assistant Professor and artist at Cal Poly Pomona, in the Dept. of Liberal Studies. Equally a contemporary artist and an anthropologist, I am interested in what I think of as sweeping questions of human existence.

    I am focused on cities and urban regions, viewed through an approach I consider post-minimalist, process-driven, spatiotemporal, and surrealist. Surrounded in philosophy and theory, my work centers on moving & still image and conceptual practice. Text and theory spin through my practices.

    For me, performance is a critical medium with intellectual possibilities--not unlike glass or plastic--and I deploy the frameworks of space and place to press spectral questions around historical context and contemporary living. Centered in an approach prioritizing my interest in the bizarre, the possibilities of what I might investigate, and what I might make, remain open.
