I am a Los Angeles and Santa Barbara-based design researcher, and experimental composer interested in the development and application of tools and techniques that generate spaces and structures that are in tune with their surroundings. My work integrates geometry, sound, drawings, installations, and code to explore the trans-disciplinary synthesis of spatial and temporal domains, the twilight between digital and analog processes, and the balance between the ancient and the avant-garde.
I received a Ph.D. from UCSB where my dissertation investigated and framed the field of Archimusic, the trans-disciplinary territory between architecture and music. While at SCI-Arc I received the M.Arch Best Thesis Honor for my thesis investigating the potential use of real-time biometrics to provide insight into how that pour senses might inform the design process.
I have held lecturer and instructor positions at SCI-Arc, USC, UCSB, and published in conferences such as ACADIA, IEEE VisAP, NIME, ACM Multimedia, and Siggraph. My work has been exhibited at shows including The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, Pacific Design Center, JAI JAI, MAK Center, Arbitare, SBCAST, CSNI, the Zero1 Biennial and is held in the permanent collections of the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics, Platform Gallery, the Art, Design & Architecture Museum, and The Hollyhock House.
