While my interests are manifold, much of my published writing has centered around the intersection of art, culture, and digital media. First launched as an art school thesis project and now long offline, my blog, Forward Retreat (2000-2008), was part of the early cohort of American art blogs that bore initial influence on then-emerging digital publishing practices in the arts. Earlier in my career, I was the digital editor of Curbed SF (since acquired by Vox and New York Magazine) and Art in America.
