I was born in 1974, in Ann Arbor, Michigan and lived there for sixteen years. I have a BFA from UC Santa Cruz where I studied painting, printmaking, and photography, graduating in 1996. Since then, I have worked as a graphic designer with companies such as Sega, Pixar, CNET, and Apple Computer.
Specializing in interactive and motion graphics work as a designer has directly influenced my artwork. It compelled me to examine where the borders of the digital and the analog world meet, and how social, cultural, and ideological trends are shaped by technology and art.
