I'm a writer, researcher, and independent curator who emigrated to the United States from London four years ago. I'm a contributing editor of Art Papers and contribute articles to Artforum.com, Sculpture, and Art Journal Online, as well as exhibition catalogue essays and a book chapter in Artists Reclaim the Commons (2013, International Sculpture Center). I work full time at the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania (in Philadelphia), where I manage all things digital—from communications (social media, website) to web-based artist commissions and curatorial projects. In 2014, my web-based projects at ICA included "A Fine Line" by Tamarin Norwood (http://bit.ly/ICALines) and "Backstory: 13 years of HIV/AIDS on Wikipedia" by Florian Kraeutli (http://icaphila.org/day_without_art). Last year, my love and knowledge of art, museums, and technology grew even further through a Getty-funded summer institute at Harvard metaLAB titled "Beautiful Data: Telling Stories About Art Through Open Data Collections," where I created my first sound piece, a sonification of exhibitions data from ICA Philadelphia and ICA London.
