Director Statement

I’m interested in the ways we perform our identity in our mobile, complex bodies. I use and create visual imagery, sound, and performance as frameworks for my creative process. I enjoy bringing diverse groups together and encourage an invested dialogue with dance artists, community partners, and designers, all of whom I see as collaborators. It is through collective effort and community cultural exchange, where I create multimedia works that engage complex philosophical questions about who we are, why we are here, and how we interact.
