MX works in a range of mediums including dance, video design, new media sculpture, costume, rap, and guided meditation. They are the creative director of transmedia production company, Complex Stability, exploring queer mysticism through crude metaphysics. MX is a 2021-2022 CultureHub Experiments in Digital Storytelling Mentor and Researcher, and Assistant Professor teaching in Lehman College's Dance (BA) and Multimedia Performing Arts (BFA) Programs.
