I am a teaching fellow in the Department of Art at Clemson University who uses photographic, video, and digital techniques. My dual career and training in the humanities includes work both as a contemporary artist and ethnographer.
More importantly, I simply value people... speaking with them, hearing their stories, and learning about their lives. My work stems from my belief that human beings from all walks of life are important.
So feel free to find out more and contact me.
The intersections between subjects that don't immediately appear to go together continually attract my interest. These include the crashing together of academic disciplines who tend to work apart, places and people that embody the meeting points of cultural and individual identities, and the fun and continual learning that comes from combining traditional and digital methods.
Hybridity has a magnetic pull, which might explain my ongoing work combining neuroscience research with digital studio techniques; recently launched project on Israeli-Palestinian borderlands; and the exploration of public transportation where I live in Charlotte, North Carolina, a city with a warm heart but lingering racial segregation.
