I am a sound and sculpture artist, fabricator, and educator from Queens, NY, presently living and working in Chicago. My work is motivated by cultural heritage, crisis, spirituality, and science. I perform experimental electronic music sampling short wave radio and field recordings.

I have an MFA in Sound from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, a BA in English from the College of the Holy Cross, and a Minor in Music Technology from Brooklyn College’s Conservatory of Music.

My work has been featured at Experimental Sound Studio (Chicago, IL), Roman Susan Gallery (Chicago, IL), Comfort Station (Chicago, IL), Links Hall (Chicago, IL), Mana Contemporary Chicago, Gene Siskel Film Center (Chicago, IL), Terrain Biennial (Chicago, IL), Oliva Gallery (Chicago, IL), Sullivan Galleries (Chicago IL), Leonard & Claire Tow Center for the Performing Arts (Brooklyn, NY), Wrong Marfa, Do Right Hall (Marfa, TX), Marfa Public Radio, and elsewhere.

I also have over a decade of experience as a professional woodworker specializing in fine art framing and display fabrication. I currently work full-time as a Senior Design & Prototyping Specialist in the Segal Design Lab at Northwestern University’s McCormick School of Engineering. 

I currently accept commission work for fabrication and sound, performance and collaboration. Please be in touch!
