I am a socially engaged artist with a background in jewelry design/metalsmithing and mechanical engineering. Through experimental practices, I explore new ways to build connection and empathy through movement. I create artworks using custom-designed technology, traditional mediums, and social interactions. Employing embodied experience, I create collaborative performances and participatory workshops using Manibus (my motion-controlled painting robot.) Explore my updated Selected Work page to get a glimpse at my process and view some of my proudest accomplishments. My current project, is a short film titled Sapient_2.021 combining dance, robotics, and visual art to explore what it means to be human in a tech-saturated world.
