Stefanie Noble is a maker of art/sound/visual performance/writing. She is also the drummer for Malvinas, an art/ rock/ noise/ punk/ riot grrrl/ jamboree/ feminist band.

After growing up in the middle of New York State, she graduated from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in Troy, NY in 2001 with a B.S. in Electronic Media Art and Communication. She then began a long-form time-based performance piece called “Academic Maverickhood” which involved abandoning her spot in an MFA program focusing on video art at Bennington College, non-completion of her MA thesis in Historic Preservation Planning at Cornell, and non-completion of her capstone film for the MA program in Documentary Film and History in the Newhouse and Maxwell Schools of Syracuse University. Ms. Noble is available to speak to groups on whether attending arts-based graduate school programs is right for them.

She currently bankrolls her own work and life as the Director of Marketing and Communications for a non-profit that starts with a letter right near the end of the alphabet and serves on the board of Adirondack Architectural Heritage, along with managing the affairs of her Small Colleague. She eats food and likes to be in the wilderness or vagabonding about the Northeast as much as possible. She also enjoys running and boxing (and the mythical sport of luge biathlon speed F1 ski jumping).
