I am an artist and PhD fellow in Cultural Analysis & Theory at Stony Brook University. There I also teach film, philosophy, cultural studies, and writing.
My academic work synthesizes intersectional environmentalism, existential phenomenology, psychoanalysis, critical theory, and technocriticism.
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, materiality, and the nature/culture relation.
Originally from Boston, I now live and work in Brooklyn
