I am an artist who creates context-specific projects that involve social engagement as a method of investigation and production. My recent work looks at the possibilities and inefficiencies of institutions, explores experiential education, and considers artistic research as a medium. The projects manifest as installations, publications, events, documents, videos, and syllabi.
I work as a program manager at the King School Museum of Contemporary Art in Portland Oregon, and I teach social practice, ideation, and research for designers at Portland State University where I also help organize the CORE Foundations Program in the School of Art + Design. I was the 2017-2018 Artist in Residence at UMass Dartmouth where I created the Center for Undisciplined Research and the 2014-2017 Artist in Residence in the Portland State University Housing and Residence Life Department.
I received an MFA from the Art and Social Practice program at Portland State University, and I hold a BA in Anthropology with a concentration in Public Archaeology from New College of Florida.
