I was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1989. My artistic practice and the rest of my life’s practices are intimately intertwined, one offering information and material to the other. Both mine the immediacy and potential of a living, breathing, moving body, as a malleable site of growth, destruction, map-making, kinesthesia, and interpersonal relationships. Currently, my research investigates the grounds on which certain maps are embedded and carved within the body, offering space for process, making, and interaction far beyond four white walls. Like the infrastructure of roads, trails, and flight paths that have carved through and mapped the physical world—Interstate 90 and the Chicago Skyway, the Appalachian Trail, the deer path in the woods of your youth—I believe that there are maps that lie dormant inside us, available to us, forged by forces such as biology and personal history.
