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.
A Bay Area native, I moved to Los Angeles to study fine art and Visual and Performing Arts Education at UCLA. After graduation, I spent a year teaching, art-making, and traveling, then moved to New England to study the Arts in Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. I considered how formal institutions, such as art museums and universities, can work towards accessibility & inclusivity through public arts programming.
My involvement with this work began when I had the privilege to be a teaching artist in schools across Los Angeles. I have since organized conferences including the Continuing the Conversation Summit and the Let’s Talk conference, and have worked in art museums including the Hammer Museum at UCLA and the Harvard Art Museums.
