Welcome and thanks for being here. Currently, I’m a MFA Candidate in Arts Leadership. Prior to my current academic adventures I lived and worked in a community of vibrant artists in Chicago. I served as an Administrator, Production Manager, Stage Manager, Producer, Mentor and Educator. No matter what my title I strive to be resource, to empower emerging artists and their work, to foster adaptability, and cultivate creativity.
At my core, I aim to make an impact of greater intercultural understanding and social responsibility through valuing curiosity, critical thinking, creativity, and inclusion. I seek to understand and recognize ways we are interconnected. Ways we must work together to create the kind of world we know is possible. Ways we can stand up with one another even in battles that are not our own; laying a foundation for brave spaces. I believe the arts have the power to build bridges across ideas and communities, so that we may all think differently, together.
