LIVES IN  Williamsburg, Brooklyn

OCCUPATION  Artist

 

ON THE CLOCK
I really never have a normal routine. Some days are back to back meetings and I am running around constantly. Other days I spend my time 3D modeling my sculptures and 3D printing prototypes at New Inc. Some days I am in my Bushwick studio or organizing shows at The Active Space Gallery. Tonight I am teaching a workshop at New Inc on 3D printing.

YOUR ART WEEKEND
What weekend isn't an art weekend? When you are an artist you end up working most weekends because that is when openings and events happen. At least that is the fun part of the job. Last weekend I was doing my "Reddit Birthday" performance piece at New Inc. The weekend before that I was displaying my "Hexahedron" piece at Maker Faire. The weekend before that I had an opening at The Active Space. I usually take Sunday to get brunch and chill.

ALBUM
Jon Hopkins Immunity is great! I listen to him while I work. He is great live, too. I just recently saw him at Hudson Project.

FILM
Any Disney princess movie! 

ARTIST
Sophie Kahn's work is amazing. She uses 3D scanners to create her sculptures. She also happens to be a friend so I have the pleasure of picking her brain.

BOOK
I am reading I Am a Strange Loop by Douglas Hofstadter. It is a real brain bender but I love it!

EATS
Pizza, pizza, and more pizza! Some of my favs -- Nice Slice in Providence, RI, Roberta's in Bushwick, Spicy Pie (traveling pizzeria at outdoor concert venues) and, of course, my own creations!

LATEST PURCHASE
3D printed prototypes from Shapeways for some upcoming projects. I like to print in plastic before I commit to printing in metal. It saves money if you have any mistakes.

GUILTY PLEASURE
My Little Pony

GRADE IN ART CLASS
Well, I won't be sharing my grades at RISD, but I can tell you I have failed an art class before in middle school. I refused to follow any of the assignments.

36 HOURS
I went to Sonoma for a long weekend/wedding and I had the best time doing wine tasting tours. We did a hike in the redwood forest and I got to see a deer. I forget how little we get to experience nature in the city.
