I am a Singaporean-American curator, writer, and educator based in New York. I work with artists who are committed to social, political, and ecological responsibility. I am interested in diversifying perspectives in contemporary and new media art both by working with historically under-represented artists as well as taking an expansive and critical approach to interpreting technology.

I am currently an instructor at the School for Poetic Computation. Previously, I was the 2019-2020 NYSCA curatorial fellow at the Queens Museum and a gallery assistant at bitforms gallery.

I hold a B.A. in Visual Art with honors from Brown University. My writing appears in publications such as Rhizome, The Nation, and Art in America, as well as in the New Museum's exhibition catalog, The Art Happens Here: Net Art's Archival Poetics. I have lectured in classes and given public presentations at institutions including Bard College, the School of Visual Arts, and Brown University. I am a regular guest critic at schools and residency programs.

I am considering all types of assignments and projects. Please feel free to contact me.
