I am a writer, photographer, and curator based in New York City, where I teach at The New School. I grew up in the industrial Midwest, and learned photography from an early age using my father's U.S. Army-issued 1966 Mamia Sekor 500TL. While I work within the tradition of architectural and documentary photography, my upbringing amid the cornfields and factories of the Midwest has disposed me toward the ordinary, the quotidian, and the banal. I have published photographs, drawings, prints, collages, and maps in dozens of venues, including Antioch Review, Dark Matter, Folly magazine, Bosphorous Art Quarterly, On Site Review, Camera Obscura, Streetnotes, Art Documentation, Domus, and Metropolis magazine. My most recent shows include Post-Acropolis at the Town Hall Galleries in Stuttgart, Germany, BQ Borderlands at the Queens Museum of Art, and juried shows at the Black Box Gallery in Portland, Art League of Rhode Island, and Ocean Gallery in San Francisco.
