My Practice

I am a designer and software developer from New Haven, Connecticut USA.

My independent practice is an examination of race and cultural issues. My work invites interrogation in the sense that those who view it are prompted to interact with and reflect upon a story or concept within a broad context. By engaging with the work, the viewer / participant can situate themselves within it, thus creating space for them to develop their own meaning and a more personalized understanding of the issues the work seeks to address.

I work with technology at the center of my practice due to its transformational ability. Reinterpreting objects and experiences using technical methods (oftentimes in conversation with more traditional processes) allows me to connect with others by creating new lines and forms of communication.

My Location

Currently Living and working in London.
