Artist, Educator, Cultural Worker, Social Justice Advocate

View Portfolio Site

I am a Cultural Worker, educator, and social justice advocate. I believe that creative collaboration is at the root of change-making. I utilize the following creative strategies: applied design, collaborative practices, public art, public pedagogies, civic engagement, social justice, storytelling, advocacy through the arts, participatory media, social media, GIS mapping, data collection, research, social media and storytelling. I founded a public resources and information network called the Social Practices Art Network. I was recently an Artist in Residence with the NYC Department of Veteran Affairs and NYC Department of Cultural Affairs. And I recently was the 2016 Artist in Residency at the Women Have Wings Residency. This program is an international art residency functioning as a laboratory of conversation and engagement. Each year WHWr invites one global activist from the WHW Courage Awards and one United States-based socially engaged artist. This is a residency connecting artists with global activists creating networks that expand each year.
