is an interdisciplinary artist working with 

writing, photography, sound, sculpture, performance, and

installation to study the space between




the rhizomatic displays of identity that transpire in the process of

 navigating these correlations are the key takeaways of my practice,

which is ultimately informed by processing personal and collective loss, 

questioning the purview of both self and institutionally assembled canons, 

and the two years I spent working at facebook, inc.


in response to the anxieties of a hyper-accelerated and

increasingly privatized information economy, I also consider methods for

coping with information overload, the limits of institutional transparency, 

and the co-option and automation of language.

I am currently operating under the protection of the pseudo-corporate entity

worldwide waiting, inc., which reaches to the public like someone learning.
