work | about


I make things to explore relationships in complex systems. I am fascinated by human organization and prioritization. My artwork celebrates and interrogates both natural and human-made structures. I think about taxonomic linguistics, urban planning, telecommunication infrastructures, climate models, energy grids, circumscriptional nomenclatures, colloquialisms and neologisms.



My creative work has benefited from several awards, which are enumerated on my resume. I earned a couple of degrees; I am deeply grateful for the opportunities I have been given. I try to leverage my own privilege to help other people who have not benefited from the advantages I and many others have enjoyed.

I live with my family in a small town in southeastern Minnesota along the banks of the Mississippi River. Our life is aplenty with delight, wonder and gratitude.
