I have collaborated with city governments, museums, non profits, writers, vloggers and educators on a wide array of creative and community-centric projects. I work at the intersection of information design and the built environment, and have recently completed projects with the Center for the Study of Political Graphics, the di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art, and FairVote to name a few. You can find me exploring Northern California’s Sierra Nevadas, snapchatting from museums, making exhaustive lists in the notes section of my laptop ... or playing the bassoon.
My current research in the Department of Design at UC Davis is two-fold: cataloging past and present aesthetics of U.S. politics (mainly here and here); and using graphic, exhibition and speculative design practices (here—more to come very soon) to imagine potential futures on this front. My MFA thesis is titled "New Mythologies for U.S. Politics" and will be on view at the Jan Shrem and Maria Manetti Shrem Museum of Art at UC Davis throughout the month of May 2019.
