Why do you do what you do?

I’m interested in the way poetry, voice, the body on screen, and collaged moving images interact.

What’s your role in SparkFest?

My collection of Micro-Operas engage with fleeting, ephemeral, everyday moments: wildflowers along city rivers, sun reflecting on skyscrapers, withered leaves on sidewalks, and the interface of body, voice, and gaze in an urban environment.
