I am happy to have been invited again to present a talk at the SD Public Library's "How To Festival" - this time I spoke about "How to Appreciate the film Star Wars in a New Way."

December 23, 2016 - Deep Field listed as among the "best" Bay Area performances in 2016!
Deep Field, the new solo dance by Katie Faulkner for which I composed the score and sound design, was just listed as among the "Bay Area dance at its best in 2016" by the San Francisco Chronicle. Describing Faulkner's choreography as "emotionally drenched [and] technically astute," Allan Ulrich included this new solo in the paper's year-end highlights of Bay Area performance. I'm incredibly proud to have collaborated on this lovely project!

I am privileged to have been able to design yet another cover for Tony Trigilio's newest poetry collection, again for BlazeVox books. This is the fifth cover I've designed for one of Tony's collections and I'm so excited for this series to evolve both poetically and graphically. Pick up a copy or get it for someone who loves vampires, television, or deeply funny and brilliant autobiographical experimental poetry!
