My research interests fall somewhere around the intersection of probability and mathematical physics. I like math that is visual and surprising. I like questions that lead rapidly from basic intuition to dizzying abstraction and back again. I don't like the words "pure" and "applied."
Together with producer Susanne Marian, I curate CPH:LAB, the incubator for emerging talent at CPH:DOX, the Copenhagen International Documentary Festival. For the past nine years, CPH:LAB has focused on bringing together emerging filmmakers and connecting them with resources to produce new films. In 2017, we are re-designing CPH:LAB to support projects that transcend the limits of traditional film and documentary practices through new media, technologies, and distribution methods.
Alongside Larry Cohen and Ronald Johnson, I am a co-founder of Point Source Youth, a nonprofit organization that works to prevent and end homelessness for youth in the US, particularly LGBTQ youth and youth of color. Our work centers on three interventions: family reconnection, short-term host homes and rapid rehousing. We coordinate service programs, produce peer-reviewed research, and engage in policy advocacy. In collaboration with several partner organizations, we've launched a successful pilot program in Minneapolis and are planning new programs in Baltimore and New York City beginning in 2017.
I've contributed writing on design, music and politics to publications that include n+1, Jacobin, The Boston Globe, The Huffington Post, The FADER, Print, and Literary Review. A few clips:
I dabble in electronic composition and production, as well as sound design for music and installation. You can listen to some of my pieces online.
I was/am a member of Truro.
