Professional title:

Independent Artist

What do you do?

I make art, essays, and performances that center experiences we don't talk about enough like violence, mental health, and disability; I also am a teaching artist and artist career consultant.


I make the work I do because I think shame scatters when we share our stories.

What should we read?
