I am an experimental filmmaker, media artist, choreographer, and performer currently based in what is now known as Binghamton, NY. My experimental films have shown at Slamdance, Antimatter, Chicago Underground Film Festival, ADF’s Movies by Movers, and in group and gallery exhibitions including the Rochester Contemporary Art Center, Whitney Humanities Center at Yale University, and Bow Arts Gallery (London), among others.
As a media artist, I have collaborated with choreographers and artists, most recently creating video textures in collaboration with Luc Vanier’s GREENGLASSDOOR project, multimedia projections performed at the John Michael Kohler Arts Center in collaboration with Danceworks Performance Company + Theatre MXT, and Super 8 / video projections for Simone Ferro’s Washington Square Park Project; a collaboration between the Dance, Film, and Architecture Departments at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. I view curation as an extension of my artistic practice, and have created Summer Series- a dance / media series in Milwaukee. Over the last three years I have invited choreographers and filmmakers from Illinois, Minnesota, Utah, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Wisconsin to perform and present work in Milwaukee.
I am an AmSAT Alexander Technique teacher and hold a BFA in Contemporary Performance & Choreography, and a BA in Psychology. My relationship to my chronic pain and negotiation living in a body is at the root of my current practice. I believe the body is the site of imprinted memories, physical and emotional traumas, and sensational experiences. I studied in the Department of Film, Video, Animation, and New Genres at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, where I graduated with my MFA in 2018. I currently teach in the Cinema Department at Binghamton University.
