About

I am an artist currently living in Dallas, Texas. I work primarily in painting, drawing, and writing, though my practice is conceptually driven and end products often take the form of video and performance or experimental texts. I am interested in ideas of the image as opposed to unmediated performative artistic encounters and use both methods in my practice.

Recently I have begun work that compares the functional similarties of machine language, computation, mark-up languages, and painting. These projects are in process and will appear on the site when complete. Click Here to see an example.
