Bio

I am a native of San Diego, CA, living in Boston, MA.  I have a BA in Art from the University of California Santa Cruz, and an MFA from Boston’s School of the Museum of Fine Arts & Tufts University.

I believe in play and kinesthetic experience.  I believe we exist in an ever-shifting constellation of systems; systems of power, systems of health and non-health, systems of touching and not-touching.  I am interested in the tools we use to navigate those systems.

Art is a process of identifying a question, then working it through to give it flesh. I make objects that are questions, objects that want to be played with.
