I work in a variety of areas related to human performance. My work focuses on the intersection of performance and technology, where “technology” is any form or process that we use to express ourselves. Thus, technology could be anything from the use of story to share information, the application of vocal training to better communicate, or the development of complex computer programs in order to engage the world.
