Probing the edges and interstitial spaces, human and ex-human.

I'm a photographer, filmmaker, and science communicator based in Brooklyn. I studied neuroscience, but also documented DIY music for Impose Magazine, curated short and experimental films for the Brooklyn Film Festival, and served as Director of Programming for the Imagine Science Film Festival. I've directed films for Impose, TedMed, NYU, and Imagine Science Spotlight, while my own work, exploring the shifting city landscape and the architectures of control, has shown at Doc NYC, the Maysles Center, the Queens Museum, Museum of the Moving Image, Old Stone House, Works on Water, and Radiator Gallery.
