While I do love teaching video art to students at Portland State University, I am thrilled to be on sabbatical leave for the 2017 - 2018 academic year. I plan to finish and distribute The Gentleman Bank Robber film, and then dive into a period of research and exploration for new projects. I cannot wait to see where this year takes me. I plan to work out of my Portland studio most of the time, breaking up the year with residencies and research trips in the US and Italy. So far, I've been awarded a residency at Playa in Southeast Oregon for the month of December 2017, generously supported by a Ford Family Foundation Oregon Visual Artist Mid-career Residency Award, and I will be the Experiments in Cinema Artist in Residence in Albuquerque, NM in April 2018. Stay tuned for updates as the year progresses!
