I am an artist, writer, and social critic. My academic work synthesizes existential phenomenology, psychoanalysis, critical theory, ecocriticism, and technocriticism.
I'm currently a PhD fellow in Cultural Analysis & Theory at Stony Brook University, where I also teach film, philosophy, cultural studies, and writing.
My artwork inspires and is inspired by my research. Primarily a painter, I utilize abstract expressionist techniques, creating layers of texture and color, at times incorporating mixed media (such as sand, fabric, paper, metal leaf, etc.) I often balance these surfaces with detailed brushwork influenced by natural forms—figures, landscapes, and natural patterns. I am drawn to themes I encounter in my research: the uncanny, memory, worldhood, and materiality.
Originally from Boston, I now live and work in Brooklyn.
