I create site-specific immersive experiences that aim to entertain, educate, illuminate, and inspire participants.
As an interdisciplinary multimedia artist and professional arts administrator, I assume various roles, including performer, writer, visual artist, director, producer, filmmaker, designer, consultant, and curator. My works are designed for exhibition on stage, screen, page, galleries, and special environments.
Frequently centered around sociopolitical and queer-empowered themes, my work reflects a keen interest in researching and reexamining familiar archetypes and universally appealing topics. I strive to present them in fresh ways that offer a revelatory perspective relevant to contemporary life. Historical elements, cultural lineage, and LGBTQ mentorship are integral components of my body of work. The constructed aspects of my work often contain a dream-like quality, evoking fantastical events and suggesting strange narratives, pulling viewers in for an unexpected journey.
My ongoing practice involves making adjustments to find balance and boundless possibility within an era of polarity, extremes, and relentless distraction. While broad in my interests, I infuse each endeavor with attention to detail. My goal is to engage the mind conceptually and perhaps touch the heart, often blending humor with tragedy and beauty with pain.
