Statement

I am a serial collaborator focused on cooperative and participatory art practices. I work with the invisible spaces that separate people from each other to create new ways of connection. My work balances the line between levity and gravity to confront uncomfortable feelings. Whether performed, interactive, or conceptual my work creates a holding space for a kind of radical therapy that unabashedly believes in the power of our collective imagination.
