CO-DIRECTOR: New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. (NRPA), March 2002-2016. NRPA was founded in 1981 to foster the development of new and experimental work for radio and sound arts. It commissioned and distributed 300 works for New American Radio (newamericanradio.org). In early 1996, NRPA extended its mandate to net art and launched Turbulence.org. Turbulence commissioned, exhibited, and archived works that creatively explored the Internet as a site of production and transmission; and supported experimentation with distributed real-time multilocation performance events. It was also home to two world-renowned blogs: Networked_Performance and Networked_Music_Review. Other major projects include Networked: a (networked_book) about (networked_art); Mixed Realities; Networked Realities: (Re)Connecting the Adamses; Upgrade!
