About Me

I'm an artist and writer living in Rochester; the Director of Visual Studies Workshop (VSW), a nonprofit organization with a mission to support artists and critics working in photography, books, and moving images; an Assistant Professor of English at SUNY Brockport where I also direct the MFA in Visual Studies program at VSW.

I'm the co-founder of Preacher’s Biscuit Books, an occasional publisher of books by artists, and my own book works are in international collections including the Tate Modern, London, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Yale Special Collections, the George Eastman Museum Library, amongst others.

Cuneiform Press published a collection of my essays on artists' books, Blurred Library, in 2017.
