For the last twenty years I have worked in design and production, with recent forays into experimental media. As a co-founder (with Matt Eller) of the award-winning studio, Feel Good Anyway (2002-2015), I served in a wide variety of roles, including Creative Director, DP, Animator, Sound Designer, Writer, Editor, as well as Executive Producer/Prop Shopper/Set Builder, and anything else required in the day-to-day operation of a small design studio that punched well above it's weight. Prior to forming FGA, I was a Senior Creative at Johnson+Wolverton, in Portland, OR.
Since FGA closed it's doors in 2015, I've continued to produce photo and video-based commercial work, while also working on a more academically-focused hybrid of art, human geography, and anthropology–with a particular emphasis on sound and memory in the landscape. My current long-term project is a sensory ethnography of modern logistics, energy, and data centers in the American West.
I have also produced a number of experimental sound-design compositions that have been performed nationally at the 2017 New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival and 2018 SEAMUS National Conference. Much of this work is based on the digital manipulation field recordings I collect during both work and travel.
Documentation of my non-commercial work can be found at consolidatedanomaly.com.
I received an MFA in Art from the University of California Santa Barbara in 1996.
