I was born in the dusty mountains of Colorado. When I was 18, I moved to NYC to make stuff, write, and read books on curbs with strangers. For a few years in between slinging plates, pushing pixels, and assisting rockstars, I lived and traveled throughout several parts of the world.
My work (social practice, photography, words, installation) has been featured in public and private spaces around the globe. I am a RACC grant recipient, was key artist in residence at the Washington County Arts Council and my collaborative project - Soul Recovery Systems - was nominated for an Index Design Award (Design to Improve Life). In 2007, I earned my MFA from Vermont's Goddard College.
Some of my stories and essays can be seen in WOBBY, Fanzine, Split Lip Press, The Flexible Persona, Wigleaf, Memoir Magazine, The Iowa Review, The Masters Review (forthcoming), Pidgeonholes (forthcoming), Denver Quarterly (forthcoming), and others. A phone-sized book (an essay about trying to get off of the internet) was published with the mighty Future Tense Books in November, 2018.
By day I work as a Creative Director and also a Freeform Portland Radio Host. Portland, Oregon is home sweet home.
