I am a New Zealand cartoonist/multimedia artist, based in Toronto.
In 2016 I completed a BFA (Hons) at Elam School of Fine Arts, working in video, text, and performance. For three years I co-produced the weekly radio show Artbank, on Auckland’s 95bFM. I co-founded the noise bands PISS CANNONN and 3 CHOCOLATIERS with Isabella Dampney.
My research interests include media history, narrative technologies, and video collage.
If I said my favourite R.E.M. album was anything but Automatic For the People (1992), I’d be lying.
