Criticism, writing, ranting, rambling, and everything in between makes the voice grow stronger and bolder.
Experiencing art is my passion. From traditional to new media arts, there’s always something to write about. Art is in everything and everywhere. My specific research interests include examining the intersections of art and technology with an affinity towards artists and creative types working with programming, creative and critical computing, open source culture, and interactive design.
