I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Informatics at UC Irvine.

I recently (2013) thru-hiked the PCT with my partner, Luke.

My dissertation research investigates the cultural phenomenon of disconnection. In a world of ‘constant connectivity,’ what are the promises and perils, possibilities and impossibilities of dis-connection in its multiple forms?

My current (side) project, is about the art & science of dirt, with Christina Agapakis.
