I am an interdisciplinary artist who cultivates spaces of improvisation, collaboration, and learning. My art works are participatory in their nature and may occur in traditional or non traditional venues like galleries, performance spaces, natural settings and in-betweens. Whether performance-based or process-based, I practice inviting others to develop appreciation for shared experiences through bodily sensation, ensemble values, and self fulfillment.
