I am an artist working in sound, video, and transmission. I work with electromagnetic signal generation and field recording within concentrated energy fields. Of interest to me are the fluctuations of electromagnetic activity, ionospheric sounding, satellite debris and collision, and time sensitivity. My video work plays with notions of the still frame, of image and sound synchronicity and collapse, the stereoscopic image and dimensional spaces.  For five years, I have been Co-Director of E.S.P. TV, a nomadic TV studio that hybridizes technologies to realize synthetic environments and deconstruct the televisual for live performance. In early 2016, I launched UNIT 11, a mobile transmission based studio and residency operated within  an ENG news van.  My most recent addition to my transmission studio  is a 10 ft C band satellite dish receiver. 


I have performed and exhibited internationally at venues and festivals such as, The Swiss Institute, Pioneer Works, The Kitchen, Museum of Moving Image, Queens Museum of Art, and Anthology Film Archives (NYC), Human Resources (Los Angeles), Lightcone, (Paris), Studio XX (Montreal), LOOP Festival (Barcelona), Pallas Projects (Dublin), Reykjavik Arts Festival (Reykjavik), General Public (Berlin), Axis Art Centre (Crew), The Independent Film Festival (Naples), Liste Art Fair (Basel), Seeing Sound Festival (Bath), and Daimon (Gatineau). With my project, E.S.P. TV, I have been artist-in-residence at Pioneer Works, Storefront for Art and Architecture, and the Museum of Arts and Design.

Video works are distributed through Lightcone, (Paris). Sound works to be released with Spectral Evidence, (Cambridge, MA), In Context Music (Vancouver/ NYC), and Robert & Leopold (NYC)
