about / contact

I'm a transdisciplinary artist researching and working out of Red Dirt Studio in Mt Rainier, MD.

Using trash, industrial waste, and soil as source material, I make ceramic artifacts. These speculative objects slip between geologic and human timescales, telling stories that are grounded in the earth but decidedly entangled with the social. 

areas of interest include: material history, abolition, YouTube, trash ontology, the problem of the human, permeability, queerness, the plantationocene, hauntings, residues, etc 

I also play in the band Ultra Beauty
