I have made two films, The Dead Man and The Erotic Life of the Eskimo, a watch in honour of An Jung-geun (published by Idealist Press International, Ltd.), a a computer desktop design and a bumper sticker.

My bookplate was exhibited at the Ex Libris exhibit at the HUB Gallery in Geelong, Victoria, Australia.

When I attended Colorado College I worked on the Catalyst and wrote a review of an exhibit by Alexandra Nechita. I also designed a poster for the screening of L'Age d'Or there.

I received a BA from Curry College, where I took a class in Digital Imaging: Photoshop (AC 2738), two of the computer graphics I made in partial fulfillment of the requirements of which were The Scalpeles History White-clothed Like a Dove and with Three Owls.

In 1997 I curated the "Surrealism: Books, Objects, Posters and Pamphlets from Four Continents" exhibit at the East Library and Information Center in Colorado Springs. In 2003 I signed a petition protesting the pending sale of the contents of Andre Breton's studio at 42 rue Fontaine in Paris.
