I'm an artist, musician, educator and researcher from Calgary, Alberta. I currently live in Toronto, Ontario, where I'm working on my PhD in the Joint Program in Communication & Culture at York and Ryerson Universities. I also studied at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where I received my MFA in 2013.
I make artworks that question and reimagine the way that media technologies shape everyday life. I work across a bunch of different media, including sound installation, virtual reality, video, performance, and more recently, web-based artworks. My works have been shown in various venues internationally, including the Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art, the Museo de la Ciudad in Queretaro, Mexico, and the Device Art Triennial in Zagreb, Croatia. I have been awarded project grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the Alberta Foundation for the Arts, and my dissertation work is currently supported by the SSHRC Joseph-Armand Bombardier Canada Graduate Scholarship.
I teach courses in cyberculture studies and media art at York University's Glendon College and the University of Calgary. I've also taught at the Alberta University of the Arts and Ryerson University.
I've played in a bunch of bands like Feel Alright, Leather Jacuzzi and Motorists. I've also engineered recordings by dozens of other musicians. You can find a selected portfolio of recordings I've worked on here.
