I practice information science for software developers, public issues and artists.
I’ve made and exhibited videotapes and installations since 1975 with residencies at the Experimental Television Center.
I taught Computer Arts at the University of Buffalo (1988 – 1990), SUNY Cortland (2004-2005) and the New York State Summer School for the Media Arts (1987 – 1992). I toured with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company on performances of Still/Here as a theatrical media specialist in 1995.
From 1999 – 2001, as one of the Production Consultants for Enliven, a creative business unit of Excite@Home, I was responsible for the development, creation and assessment of animated interactive advertising units and mini-sites using Shockwave for Director, HTML, and Photoshop. The consultant process was not only technical; it involved the distillation of complex ideas by their representation into images and texts broadly displayed to the general public.
From 2002 – 2004, I worked for the Experimental Television Center as an archivist, digitizing and writing thousands of records in Filemaker Pro for the Video History Project and the private collection of Ralph Hocking. I started Mixplex in 2004 and produced an interactive kiosk for the Ithaca Sciencenter’s permanent collection.
I earned a Master of Library Science degree in 2007 and worked as a reference librarian at the Tompkins County Public Library and Tompkins Cortland Community College.
Working at PSD Consulting in Ithaca, from 2011-2012, I managed over fifteen client sites with frequent client interaction on specifications and web site features. I participated in the development of site customizations, software releases and upgrades.
