I am an artist, educator, and curator focused on experiential spaces of learning and collaboration. With work centering on responsive facilitation, I am most invested in creating academic, social, and emotionally intelligent environments that meet participants of all ages where they are. By encouraging active participation combined with self-reflection, my objective is to inspire an engagement with the world as a space for learning.

Art is the language of our collective history, and my courses are decidedly decolonized to reflect this. My projects facilitate a sense of place, enhance creative problem solving and critical thinking, highlight connections to history, and nurture personal agency within individuals. For students this creates confidence and cultivates empathy, all while inspiring responsible civic and global engagement.
