I’m an artist, curator, and zinester based on the Jersey shore. My social practice is all about making things we can live through to know our own affective, queer selves. Eyebeam fellow, NEW INC member, awarded by the New Jersey State Council on the Arts, commissioned by Rhizome, funded by Meta Open Arts, exhibited at Les Rencontres d’Arles, sold at Art Book in China, collected by MoMA, reviewed in Art in America, and bested by Hyperallergic.  


I’m an artist, curator, and zinester based on the Jersey shore. My social practice is all about connecting — making things that we can live through and expand with to know our own affective, queer selves.

Most recently, I’ve been on the forefront of livestreaming as technology and performance art. My collaborative streaming platform for artists, THING received funding from NEW INC, Meta Open Arts, Gray Area, Goethe Institute, and the Federal Foreign Office of Germany. In 2021, Untitled (Larry & Bobby Kissing), a networked performance for ICP was awarded by the New Jersey Council on the Arts. Then in 2020, I was an Eyebeam fellow and NEW INC member, both in support of The Chrisy Show, a talk show broadcast on an adult webcam site.

My art has been part of numerous exhibitions, festivals, and conferences around the world from the Palais de Tokyo to China Art Book. My Rhizome commission Sorry to dump on you like this, a porn-novella-zip-file was named the best individual work of Internet art in 2016 by Hyperallergic, acquired by the Whitney and MoMA, and exhibited at ETH Zurich. My photography of Kevin was nominated for the Discovery Award at the international photography fair Rencontres d’Arles.

My curatorial projects include a year of programming for the ICP Museum and Library (All Used Up, Emergency Readings, and Queering the Collection) that was coproduced by GenderFail and Larker and featured work by Allison Parrish, American Artist, Molly Soda, Morehshin Allahyari, Nora Khan, Paul Soulellis, Porpentine Charity Heartscape, and Shiv Kotecha. I’ve twice curated online pavilions for The Wrong Biennale, one on safe space and another about death in a web 2.0 landscape.

My books, including a trilogy for the poetry collective TROLL THREAD, can be found in the libraries at the Met, Library of Congress, Walker, ICP, SUNY Buffalo, SVA, Wendy’s Subway, 本 hon books, and Printed Matter.
