I am an artist and educator based in Dallas, Texas. I work primarily with film, video, and expanded cinematic forms.

Much of my recent work responds to the rapid changes in how moving images are created and experienced in the 21st century. I have performed and screened my films and videos at museums, galleries, microcinemas, and film festivals internationally, including recent events at Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, The International Symposium of Electronic Art in Vancouver, Oak Cliff Film Festival, Chicago Underground Film Festival, San Francisco Cinematheque, and the Texas Biennial.

I teach at several institutions throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area and curate programs around the region regularly, including the Dallas Medianale and as cofounder/programmer for Spectacle Society, a microcinema collaboration with the Dallas Contemporary. I am also a regular visualist at Dallas Ambient Music Nights, a monthly showcase of experimental music in the D/FW area.

I'm posting lots of new work and documentation througout the site. Take a look!

In December of last year, I was awarded a microgrant from the Nasher Sculpture Center to make a film print of Blue Movie, which is currently being printed at Colorlab

This past January, I was named a Mastermind by the Dallas Observer.

I will be an artist in residence at Signal Culture in August 2016.
