I am an artist exploring diverse subjects through participatory and collaborative project structures, publishing, and curating. My socially engaged practice is responsive to people and places and I conduct research to inform public artworks. The resulting projects often reveal and celebrate what is hiding in plain sight, and direct attention to the unseen, unnoticed, and hidden; minutiae is my muse.

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) and  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 underappreciated female film director, an award-winning community radio program, and a collaboratively researched and developed performance and exhibit about a forgotten Portland poet.

Born in northern Virginia, I was a longtime resident of upstate New York and am now based in Portland, Oregon.
