Hello, I come from the Internet.

I'm a design strategist and exhibition maker based in NYC. I work as a consultant for agile product teams and startups, and run TRANSFER.

I also direct The Current, a cooperative collection of contemporary art that examines technology's impact on the human condition.

Director, THE CURRENT


The Current is a non-profit collecting museum supported by the next generation of contemporary art patrons.

Members of our cooperative collection committee attend our salons to receive details on the works we are considering for The Current’s collection, and have a vote on which works are collected. Our committee members also have special access to enjoy the artworks in the museum’s collection.

The Current's cooperative collections committee is open to anyone, you can register online.

 

Owner, TRANSFER


TRANSFER is an exhibition space that explores the friction between networked studio practice and its physical instantiation.

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

TRANSFER was founded in March 2013 to support artists with solo exhibitions and experimenting with new formats for installation. In 2016 the programming shifted to focus on solo shows from women refiguring technology, and expanded with more international exhibitions, pop-ups and art fairs. In under five years TRANSFER has produced over 50 exhibitions in NYC and abroad, and gained acclaim from the press.

In our 5th year, TRANSFER is expanding support of new formats such as VR and opening our space in Brooklyn to curators with new perspectives.
