"Art is something that lets you breath with a different kind of happiness" -- Anni Albers
I've worked in various art and educational settings, having the privilege of fully experiencing Albers' wise words. Not only does art, in its boundless forms, let us "breath with a different kind of happiness," I think it also expands and connects us to our humanity. Provokes us to critique the systems we live in. Connects us to one another. Frees our creativity.
This is why I work in art, culture, and education. My work experiences include curating exhibitions and managing public programs for the Santa Cruz Museum of Art and History, tutoring inmates at San Quentin State Prison, assisting contemporary artists at New York fine art paper mill Pace Prints, and teaching at UC Berkeley. I currently manage public engagement and dialogue for Intersection for the Arts in San Francisco, where my projects entail creating artist residencies from scratch, managing the organization's re-branding efforts, and systemizing internal communication and artist services.
Also a visual artist, I'm dedicated to making art a meaningful and accessible part of people's everyday lives.
