I am a composer focusing on creative works that interrogate their own situations: My technology-based performances wake a world mediated by ubiquitous technology, exposing its artifacts and impacts on the human experience. They respond to a culture built from co-opting prior forms of expression by short- circuiting that process to let the voice of the system itself emerge and be known. My broader intermedia works advance this same mindset more generally: to view the world like a creative “life hacker,” mindful to oft-overlooked connections and opportunities, the life blood of original creativity.
