Image from Season of Shadows (In Real Life) performance at Chocolaterian Cafe on Nov 10, 2017. Portrait by Duke Virginia.

I am a queer and feminist artist, writer, and educator serving as Executive Director of The ArtWrite Collective and as a teaching artist at the Monroe Street Arts Center. My major creative works are transdisciplinary, social, and performative, while day to day projects work through questions in small visual experiments.

I received the B.S. in Art and undergraduate certificate in Gender and Women’s Studies from University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2012; I received the M.S. in Educational Leadership and Policy from Portland State University with a graduate emphasis in community-based learning in 2014. Hiking 255 miles of the Superior Hiking Trail (2016) and 1,019 miles of the Appalachian Trail (2014) have been self-guided artist residencies, gestures of reflection, reintroductions to my body, and grounding exercises for my creative career.
