I’m a designer and artist based in Oakland, California. My site-specific work treats the historical aspects of given places, often touching on the economic and scientific dynamics that have shaped the site. Most recently I am completing a multi-year effort to investigate the shifting economic narratives of a rural site in Western Sweden. Other projects have documented the nuclear and military industry in rural Idaho, and woven narrative connections between a booming Silicon Valley and the shifting fortunes of Berlin, Germany.
My work is currently based in photography, and in public works designed for installation in public spaces. My design work spans a decade of exhibits for scientific museums, as well as years of design work for the software industry.
I hold a BFA from SFAI, and an MFA from CCA. I hav taught drawing, color theory and exhibition design to undergraduate and pre-college students at both colleges
