I like playing with media and technology to design stories, products, and experiences.
I'm currently overseeing the development of creative work for Sketchfab, the leading platform for sharing and experiencing 3D & VR anywhere online. I'm also serving on the board of UnionDocs, a non-profit supporting documentary art. You can read more about my current projects here.
I began my career working primarily as a musician, recording and performing with groups such as Voxtrot, Beirut, Yellow Ostrich, Bright Moments, Adam Green, and others. I was a sound recordist for the 2013 film Cutie and the Boxer, which was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature.
I joined Pond5 as one of its earliest employees, and helped build it into the largest global marketplace for licensing royalty-free media. Later, I was one of the co-founders of TapTape, a crowdfunding platform that gave fans the opportunity to invest in artists.
I have a thing for bad wordplay, and I generally enjoy spending time with bicycles, languages, bodies of water, and other modes of discovery.
My work is primarily concentrated within a few related areas:
As an entrepreneur and startup enthusiast, I'm interested in platforms, products, & ideas that can facilitate a robust and inclusive cultural economy.
As an artist and theorist, I'm exploring virtual and immersive experiences, cybernetics, the meaning of authorship/authenticity, environmental communication, and the thrill of making.
Overseeing the development of creative work at the leading platform for sharing and experiencing 3D & VR anywhere online.
A collection of fragmented melodramas unfolding over the course of 24 years, and an exercise in gross self-indulgence.
Coming soon... a transmedia project using digital conservation to encourage cultural and environmental sustainability.
