A positive force in the fields of Emerging Media, Academia, Business, the Arts, and Advocacy.

Bio

I am an internationally exhibited artist exploring empathy through the medium of participation. My art has been experienced at major venues, including at The New York Public Library and Kidspace @ MASS MoCA, and has been featured across various media, including The Book of Alternative Photographic Processes, The Boston Globe, El País, Boing Boing, and MobuzzTV.

I am also an experienced entrepreneur who has worked on projects including visual, interaction and user experience design, rapid hardware and software prototyping, development for desktop, web, and mobile applications and games, as well as advertising, marketing and social media strategy for major companies through my New York based consultancy.

I currently serve as Assistant Dean for Emerging Media and as an Assistant Arts Professor at NYU Shanghai, where I helped found the Interactive Media Arts (IMA) and Interactive Media + Business (IMB) majors. IMA and IMB are the first undergraduate counterparts of NYU Tisch School of the Arts Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP).

Prior to joining NYU Shanghai, I was an Assistant Professor of Media Arts & Technology at BMCC, City University of New York. I was also Co-Founder and Co-Director of Greylock Arts, an organization based in western Massachusetts with a mission to facilitate a deeper public appreciation for emerging arts practice through exhibitions, events, and educational programing.

My approach to everything embodies many of the ideals of the Maker and Open Source movements including; community building and engagement, broad interdisciplinary methods, an open practice, and the DIY ethic.

I hold a Master of Professional Studies from ITP and a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography from the Art Institute of Boston / Lesley University College of Art and Design.
