I am an interdisciplinary artist and educator based in Brooklyn, New York. I work in a variety of media, from walks to WIFI to gardening, to reveal how human and nonhuman lives intertwine with other earth systems.
Born in rural Northern California, I went to college in Los Angeles, where I studied art and environmental science. After falling in love with biology field work, I began combining ecology with art. I relocated to New York City in 2005, and completed my MFA at Hunter College in the fall of 2009. Elsewhere on the internet, I use my blog occasionally, write on Medium once in a while, and post on twitter quite a bit.
