In the 21st century, the ability to synthesize information, create narrative structures, and effectively communicate across media are critical skills, and my omnivorous art-making practice both feeds those skills and creates meaning in my life. The practice of art making informs my organizational, consulting, and strategic work, and opens up creative possibilities and points of connection. Along with my undergraduate education in studio art and theater, writing poems, personal essays and cultural criticism has been a mainstay of my creative practice, and producing and performing in theater has been as instructive as any Master’s degree in psychology, logistics, and organizational dynamics.

I love words. I love the way they connect us, the way they define and shift our understanding of the world, how we push back to change and invent new words and means of expression and connection. From poems to essays, commissioned works to freelance thoughts, get to know my writing, and drop a line for your creative writing needs.
“Theatre can help us build our future, rather than just waiting for it,” wrote the Brazilian theatermaker and activist Agusto Boal. Theater, and the communal practice of creation, along with the practical realities of putting on a show, has been one of my greatest joys and teachers, whether we’re spelling it with an -re or an -er.
As a visual artist, I've worked primarily with paint, print-making and installation work, but have settled into a visual practice that supports the other creative aspects of my life - some graphic design, photography, and video work to support my creative collaborations, as well as some photography and drawings for my own pleasure.
