As a professional photographer / artist with 15 years of experience, I specialize in unveiling the intricate and invisible systems upon which our every day reality operates. My first big project was on Cargo shipping and from there I went on to photograph large scale infrastructure with a focus on Energy: from oil, coal, solar, geothermal. My editorial work has been published in Fortune, Fast Company, The New York Times Magazine, The Wall Street Journal, Conde Nast Portfolio, Bloomberg News, The Guardian, Slate, Orion, and others.

Several years ago I started photographing the physical infrastructure of the Internet and after learning how that system works, I began speaking publicly about privacy and trust, eventually working as Executive Director of the Internet Society NY Chapter. 

This year, I came back to my roots as an artist and embarked on a brand new project to visualize the electromagnetic fields (EMFs) of our devices. These invisible networks form beautiful patterns and images and I’m extremely curious to understand how they interact with our own EMFs. Using resin, iron filings, and ferrofluids, I’ve been making small objects that encapsulate and hold these fields for us all to see.
