My research is primarily centered around the interaction between art and technology in the postwar period. Geographically speaking, I focus on the United States, and even more particularly: Los Angeles.

As an undergraduate student I mainly focused on urban economic research in tandem with a local Salt Lake City non-profit, Voices for Utah Children.

My love for Japanese cyberpunk and critical theory pushed me to instead commit towards academic research.

As a graduate student at the University of Oklahoma I learned discipline, both literally and metaphorically. That is where I decided to hone in on contemporary art and to dedicate myself to the study of history.

I’m currently working on a professional M.Arch degree because I grew suspicious of academia, and I also wanted to learn how to physically realize my conceptual ambitions.
I eventually plan to complete a Ph.D. program in architecture. I am currently interested in the life and works of both John Hejduk and Martin Kippenberger.
