God Family Internet is a true transmedia memoir, consisting of a print book that hyperlinks via QR code to other stories told through images, sound, and internet ephemera. It is designed to be read alongside a cellphone, so that while one is reading one can also use their phone to access different types of material that couldn’t be printed.
The book contains a collection of stories about my youth in relation to materials, objects, people, theory and internet culture. The stories range from hilarious diatribes about my relationship with animals, to poignant reflections on popular internet culture, to philosophical questions about spirituality. All of the stories relate to god, family, or the internet, often at the same time.
Selfie Portrait Project is an interactive experience where participants get the opportunity to be portrait artists. The experience begins as an open-ended writing activity, where the user writes a description of themselves. Next they receive someone else’s written self-description, from which they will draw a portrait. After that they take a selfie. I then upload all three pieces to the website, where users can use an ID number to locate their 3 part portrait. See portraits and learn more at selfieportrait.me.
I created this series with the idea of cushioning the bad news moms deal with every day by having it delivered from a really hot guy. I was involved with every step of the process, including writing, casting, design and production. Though NickMom has now closed as a site, you can still view a short reel of this series, via the company that produced it, here.

And before that: 6 minutes 1 second of silence
This short film examines the narrative possibilities of silence, identity and time. It is a compilation of footage recorded over a period of two years, a time when I was creating personal video diaries that were never made public. I took the beginning of each video, before I started talking, and edited them together to show a the progression of a person over time. It was created as part of "God Family Internet."
