Best advice received:

No matter how busy you are, there’s always time to draw.

Working habits:

Typical academic rhythm: summer binges of uninterrupted creative flow, rest of the time multi-tasking and fragmentation.

Unexpected art experience:

Killjoy's Kastle, Dierdre Logue and Allyson Mitchell’s Lesbian Feminist Haunted House.

Past research/show curated:

“Fruit Machine” was an interactive multi-media performance, created with Suzie Silver, that featured a tumescent robot and a Yeti with a bucky-ball head.  We performed it around the US including Phoenix, New Mexico, San Diego, Norfolk, VA, Washington DC.

Current research/show curating:

“Fairy Fantastic” is a web-based series of video Fairytales, created with Suzie Silver for queer kids of all ages.  The first video, “The Sausage” can be viewed here: http://www.fairyfantastic.org/.  Currently we’re working on “Stinkhorn” a psychedelic Western based on a Scottish animal transformation tale.

Queerest (Art) Experience:

Donkey Skin by Jaques Demy; PJ Raval’s music videos for Christeene

Three Things on your playlist:

The music is totally eclectic, with a heavy dose of disco and country. I actually listen to a lot of books.  Margaret Atwood’s MaddAddam trilogy, Naomi Klein’s This Changes Everything and China Mieville’s The City & The City were three recent favorites.
