As a kid I taught myself to program computers, but at the University of Connecticut I chose to study art rather than computer science or engineering. Following graduation, I cut my teeth interning for David Reinfurt in his Manhattan studio, O R G—an experience I am deeply grateful for. I received my MFA in graphic design from Yale University, relocated to London for a few years, then made a permanent home of Brooklyn, New York where I continue to interweave art, technology, music, and occasional writings.
My artwork has been exhibited in venues such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, ZKM in Germany, the SFMOMA in San Francisco, and is in the permanent collection of the Fondation Cartier in Paris. My work has also appeared in publications such as Domus, Esquire, and Creative Review. Together with my amazing colleagues, we’ve won several industry awards, including the Cannes Gold Lion. I’ve also occasionally taught graduate courses that mix code with graphic design at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP).
I’m always excited about the future.
