I am a teaching artist, arts programmer, and graphic designer.
My work considers the intersections between art, artists & their communities, and the institutions that connect them all together.
I grew up in the Silicon Valley, attending public schools with high-quality and well-funded arts programs. I moved to Los Angeles for my Bachelors, and studied fine arts and Visual and Performing Arts Education at UCLA. After matriculating, I spent a year teaching, art-making, and traveling, then relocated to New England for a Masters in Arts in Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. In grad school, I focused my studies on how formal institutions, such as art museums and universities, can work towards accessibility & inclusivity through public arts programming.
My professional experiences includes my work as a teaching artist in schools across Los Angeles and the Bay Area, collaborations with art museums including the Hammer Museum at UCLA and the Harvard Art Museums, and organizing conferences such as the Continuing the Conversation Summit and the Let’s Talk conference.
