I am a versatile professional based in Milwaukee, with a background in art as a BFA graduate from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Over the years, I have worn multiple hats as an artist, a director specializing in fund development for artists and nonprofits, a curator of public art, and an active community organizer. In the early stages of my career, I established and curated Bliss Studio & Gallery, which showcased a diverse range of multi-disciplinary installations. Since then, I've continued to curate exhibitions in both Milwaukee and Chicago, contributing to the vibrant arts and culture scene in these cities.

I serve as the Development Director for Art Intersection Milwaukee and Director for Washington Park Wednesdays. These programs facilitate collaborative community art expression. As a Community Arts Project Manager, my goal is connectivity. I use my skills and resources to bring projects together to benefit neighborhoods, communities, and non-profits as a freelance consultant in Milwaukee.  


In the summer months, when leading Washington Park Neighbors (WPN), I curate and facilitate Washington Park Wednesdays in the historic Washington Park Bandshell. Through design, marketing, and partnership, I collaboratively fuel an 8-week concert series that entertains thousands of people in the Washington Park neighborhood.


Outside of my roles in community engagement and fund development, I express my creativity through crafting both functional and sculptural stoneware ceramics, transforming traditional utilitarian forms into art pieces with clean, enduring designs intended to withstand daily use and ritual. I draw inspiration from Scandinavian and Japanese aesthetics, valuing their resourcefulness and emphasis on utility, and I'm open to wholesale orders and enthusiastic about collaborative projects.
