I am an artist, cyborg, and educator currently based in Montreal. I have a bachelors from Concordia University, a masters from OCAD University, and currently I am a PhD candidate at the University of Toronto. I am interested in lasers, technology, outer space exploration, and building whimsical robots. Currently, I run community initiative and partnerships at the Milieux Institute at Concordia. I am Summit Chair and board member at the Open Source hardware Association, co-executive director at Little Dada, and secretary and board member at Pleasure Dome. You may know me from co-organizing events like Make Change Conference , Make Friends Meetup, Long Exposure Festival, Stupid Shit Hackathon Toronto, Defcon Biohacking Village, or from being director at Site 3 coLaboratory. I’ve worked with companies such as hackaday.io, SupplyFrameHardware, Sheertex. I am an occasional part time faculty member at OCAD University, Ryerson University, and Sheridan College where I teach electronics, programming, and wearable tech. I work with clients like informal and Alpenglow Industries to grow their communities, and co-chair the Digital Naturalism Conference. I teach electronics classes at places like inter/access and School of Machines, Making, and Make believe. Primarily, my artistic work is concerned with bodies and space, academically, I am researching bodily politics in outer space exploration.
