I am an artist using curatorial strategies to uncover and share exciting stories that I find in places I live and visit. My work is socially-engaged and depends on the participation of other people, sometimes a close friend, and other times, complete strangers. My background in photography and design inform my social practice, and my projects appear as books, workshops, radio shows, zines, festivals, exhibitions, installations, posters, signs, postal correspondence, and sculpture.
I hold a BFA in Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology and am an MFA candidate in Art and Social Practice from Portland State University. My work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at Portland State University, Salem Art Works (NY), Albany Center Gallery (NY), and the Opalka Gallery of the Sage Colleges (NY). My photography work has been published in The New York Times Magazine, the Wall Street Journal, NPR, and the BBC.
My recent projects include a city-wide poster campaign honoring an under-appreciated film director (Agnès Varda) in collaboration with Jennifer “JJ” Jones, an artist residency at a movie theater, an award-winning community radio program, and a collaboratively researched and developed performance and exhibit about a turn-of-the-century Portland poet. My book of photographs and interviews I Want Everyone to Know: The Black History Month Doors at Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School was published by the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. School Museum of Contemporary Art (KSMoCA) in April 2022. I am in the inaugural cohort of artist fellows at the New York Public Library Picture Collection for 2022—2023.
Born in northern Virginia, I was a longtime resident of upstate New York and now I’m based in Portland, Oregon.
