As a researcher, I am interested in the phenomenological experience of technological innovation as it expresses itself in film, interactive design, and poetry, as well as technological and digital objects as a cultural artifacts themselves. I build tools to carry out research, and situate my findings within the larger body of philosophical literature.
In particular, this means the metaphysics and aesthetics of machine learning and AI, the economic and ethical implications of robotics, blockchain, and IoT, and the ontology of complexity theory. I also have a dream of building a programming language for quantum computing.
I am also interested the mind (jung & neuroscience), somatics, food sovereignty, different systems of knowledge, and alternate modes of education, understanding and ‘knowledge production’, among other things – but those are the top 5.
I have worked as a technologist and entrepreneur for almost (two) decades. That means being an IC, starting companies (13bit production, kokowa, paom), collectives (the botmatrix), events (the robot parade), performances and art (Art Of Py, Heddatron), mentoring and advising startups (New Inc), teaching (Fordham), and consulting (I currently do devops consulting for fortune100 companies cause baby’s gotta support her book buying habit). I love talking with people, teaching workshops around NYC, hanging out at hacker spaces, and playing classical guitar (and sometimes jazz).
I also have a minimum viable CV that is kinda up to date.
