I make videos, live projections, installation, performance pieces, and 2d drawing and collage works. I often choose to utilize the simplest tools. I like for the method of creation to be apparent because I do not work in illusion, I work by exposing. Thusly, I want viewers to engage with the work while still realizing it is a construct, not a reality. I revel in using materials that are available to most Americans: I draw with the same pens they use to write their grocery lists and film with a camera that has documented cute house cats many times over.

My work is colorful, chaotic and unsettling. Gender identity, corporeal awareness, sexuality, and anxiety are explored through social media and changing notions of the private vs public.

I currently live and work in Asheville, North Carolina.
