I am an artist and tech worker operating at the intersection of media and movement.
I work to promote open data and advance Internet research and policy as Director at Measurement Lab. Previously, I worked to defend and promote human rights online with eQualitie.

I am a 2019 Artist in Residence at Movement Research and my work has been shown at MR’s Fall Festival, New York Art Book Fair and the Internet Archive’s Decentralized Web Summit. I have been supported by Jonah Bokaer Arts Foundation, rehearsal Residency, Pioneer Works and Peer-to-Peer NYC, am the author of 100 Scores: movement inspired by computers and tend to my creative practice at Soft Surplus, a collective warehouse space in Brooklyn.

My current research interests include the proliferation of movement through crappily compressed images, the resistance of automated ‘best practice’ bodies, and how analog forms move in resistance against digital power.
