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.
Museums + Politics + Activism is a series of articles exploring how museums across the U.S. publicly engage with politics and activism. The series encourages and helps guide museums to address contentious or "political" subjects effectively through inspiring critical thinking, self-reflection, and dialogue amongst their visitors.
