I am an independent exhibition designer and activist artist based in Los Angeles, California. I work with museums, libraries, and cultural centers to design imaginative learning environments that challenge and inspire visitors.
With a B.A. in American Studies, an M.F.A. in Museum Exhibition Design, and a previous career in community organizing, I aim to inspire civic engagement and to spur real societal change through my work. I believe that every person has a story to tell, and that these stories have the power to transform our culture.
I am an organizer behind Free the Museum Project, an initiative to activate the “museum experience” in the world around us.
In addition to my design practice, I write and speak regularly on the role of museums in political arena.
Museums + Politics + Activism is a monthly-ish series of articles I am currently writing. It explores how museums across the U.S. publicly engage with politics and activism to encourage and help guide museums to address contentious or "political" subjects effectively through inspiring critical thinking, self-reflection, and dialogue amongst their visitors.

The first exhibit I ever designed (age 6). Obviously I was bound to be an exhibition designer.
