Whether in the form of a website, installation, cellphone application or a performance, my projects call attention to how technology has altered the ways in which people communicate with each other and their surrounding environment. A New York City native, my work often involves applying and manipulating technology in the bustling cityscape of which i am so fond.
I'm currently an instructor at DiyAbility and continue to work as an interactive artist.

Have you ever been in a situation where you wished your cell phone would ring? Maybe you wanted to look extra important or popular on that hot date. Or maybe you just needed an excuse to escape from an unpleasant meeting. With "The Popularity Dialer", you can plan ahead. Via a web interface, you can choose to have your phone called at a particular time (or several times). At the elected time, your phone will be dialed and you will hear a prerecorded message that's one half of a conversation. Thus, you will be prompted to have a fake conversation and will easily fool those around you.
Talking on the phone is no longer a private exchange. What if you could carry a phone booth with you and set it up when you needed to converse in private?

Email message exchanges are momentary, digital and private. How is the meaning of a message exchange altered when the medium upon which it presented is permanent, analog and public?
Mobile Assassins is a mobile/updated version of the traditional big game Assassins where camera phones are used as both the means of assassination and also the vehicle of deploying information about your targets. When your target walks out into the open, you ambush him, snapping a photo of his face with your camera phone, effectively making your next kill. You are crafty and quick. You are a covert operative. You are a Mobile Assassin.

My thesis work involved building game controllers into undergarments so that games are played through players physically touching one another, challenging the traditional notions and orientation of video game play.
In a network, repeaters regenerate signals. They're needed in many networks because data transmissions can only span a limited distance before signal quality degrades. Repeaters are used to extend the distance over which data travels. I created a system where Gap Stores were the original data source and the repeating modules in the system. The data was to be a shirt, jeans and belt.
