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 are/have been being published in WOBBY, Fanzine, Split Lip Press, The Flexible Persona, Wigleaf, Memoir Magazine, The Iowa Review (forthcoming), and others. A phone-sized book (an essay about trying to get off of the internet) was published with 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.
I aim to absorb and translate experiences through performance, words, images, songs, conversations, etc.. I examine hidden, taboo, and forgotten spaces, collect bits from my subconscious, explore everyday rituals (food, domesticity, traffic, talk about the weather), relationships to myself and others (human and non-human), smell, sexuality, the body's response to the internet, aural landscapes, and more.
