I’m an independent curator. I work with experimental and experiential art as well as traditional forms, creating exhibitions that strengthen a sense of community. I’m interested in changing how we interact with art — moving from passive split-second viewing to deeper engagement. I’m chasing that moment when art can alter our worldview.

I’m a journalist. I’ve covered art and culture since 2013, writing for Palm Springs Life, the San Diego Union-Tribune, San Diego Tourism Authority and other print and online publications. One of my favorite interviews was with Robert Irwin, just after he opened his monographic exhibition at the Hirshhorn, but before he’d completed his work in Marfa. “Robert Irwin: Artist in the Moment” appeared in the San Diego Union-Tribune and the Los Angeles Times.

I’m currently freelancing for Me Yah Whae, the magazine of the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians.
