"I consider myself a student of magical thinking and landscape; looking specifically at the ways in which this mode of thinking (for better or worse) has shaped environmental policy and land use. I work in non-fiction animation, motion graphics, installation while simultaneously connecting and creating opportunities for other artists through larger curatorial and editorial projects such as Water, CA (a six year collaboration with Enid Ryce) and Winter Shack (a three year collaboration with Alex Branch). I’ve also collaborated on numerous visual music projects with experimental composer, Melissa Grey and musician David Eng and most recently with electronic music pioneer, Vince Clarke.
My work has been shown in several continents and in fiercely alternative spaces such as Hive House Los Angeles, High Desert Test Sites, The Manhattan Bridge Anchorage, Teeny Cine’s converted trailer, Portable Forest, a Texas Grain Silo and in the cabin of a capsized ship at Machine Project in Los Angeles. And more traditional art spaces such as Cantor Center for the Arts at Stanford University, LACE Contemporary Exhibitions, Orange County Museum of Art, Torrance Art Museum, The Crocker Museum, Dallas Contemporary, and the Armory Center for the Arts. I was the 2015 animator-in-residence at Circuit Bridges, New York and was recently awarded a Jerome Foundation Grant in Film/Video for a forthcoming animated film about El Paso and Ciudad Juàrez in the early 90’s."
