Experience in this field
I have been a professional artist for 15 years.  I work across media and have secured numerous grants, fellowships, and commissions to support my own work as well as collaborative work with others. I know the challenges and needs to think, risk, realize and inspire.

For the past 10 years I have also managed the philanthropy program at the Keith Haring Foundation, where I advise on, process, and oversee grant applications and grantee relations.  Through this work I have developed a thorough knowledge of the do’s and don’ts in asking for support, and moreover believe in the transformative power of giving.

I teach, visiting countless universities and currently serving as Adjunct Faculty at Virginia Commonwealth University.  I  enjoy working with students, and am deeply inspired to be a part of academic structures that support active and ongoing learning processes and exchanges.

I regularly visit and perform research in Berlin, and attended a low-residency program for my own MFA degree (at Bard College in NY), so I am both extremely familiar with the cultural environment in which Transart Institute is situated, and am sensitive to the rhythms of working within and emerging from Transart’s unconventional structure.
