I am an interdisciplinary artist, activist, and educator. My primary medium is video although my earlier work included assemblage, performance art, electronic music, and DJing. I entered the Digital Arts and New Media (DANM) program at the University of California Santa Cruz in 2008 after eight years serving as the Head of Post Production at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts School of Filmmaking where I taught non-linear editing and courses on stereotypes in film. Prior to teaching, I was an independent video producer seeking alternatives to talking heads by incorporating Theater of the Oppressed techniques into social documentary work that addressed issues of violence towards women and racism. I am currently developing interactive exhibition technology with my fellow DANM Alumni Lyes Belhocine. Our shared interest in remix culture, interactive experience design, equal access to technology, and participatory play has resulted in a series of exhibitions throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
