Hello, I come from the Internet.

I'm a UX specialist and independent curator based in NYC. I work as Principle Design Researcher for Strategy & Design, and run TRANSFER – an exhibition space I co-founded in 2013.


TRANSFER is an exhibition space that explores the friction between networked studio practice and its physical instantiation. I direct our programming and monthly exhibitions, supporting a community of artists working with emerging computer-based practice.

The gallery operates in collaboration with our artists to support acquisition and preservation of their work, in new formats and with new modes of presentation.

The curatorial vision of TRANSFER is to support emerging techniques across media, agnostic of form but focused around a humanistic encounter with networked culture.

In our first year TRANSFER hosted ten solo exhibitions, over a dozen events and attracted an international community of supporters. In 2014, the gallery presented artwork at five international art fairs and curated 10 solo exhibitions in our Brooklyn-based gallery.

Now in our third year, the gallery is focused on expanding our global reach, exhibiting abroad to further the exposure of challenging media-based formats and techniques.
