RESUME

BIO

I received my MFA from the School of Visual Arts in 1999 and this same year showed in the first Liverpool Biennial of Contemporary Art. I was a guest at Yaddo in 2002. I have also shown at E31 Gallery in Athens, Greece and at the Newhouse Center for Contemporary Art in Snug Harbor. I was selected for the 2008 AIM program at the Bronx Museum of the Arts. My work has been reviewed in Time Out NY and The New York Times.
