I began working at the Beall Center for Art and Technology in 2005 and was appointed as Associate Director and curator in April 2006. An artist and educator, I received my BFA from California Institute of the Arts in 1979 and MFA from UCLA in 1986. For the past twenty years I have taught studio art and critical theory in art schools and universities including Otis College of Art and Design, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, Santa Clara University, San Francisco Art Institute and U.C. Irvine. Although I began as a photographer, since 1990 new media has become integral to my artistic practice and I also work as a web producer and technical advisor for individual artists, museums and universities such as Walker Art Center, University of Minnesota and the Orange County Museum of Art
