I am a transdisciplinary, transgender artist, theatre-maker, scholar, gardener, and student. I work and play in the realms of ecology, sustainable agriculture, radical pedagogy, magic, dance, theatre, and community organizing.

I am interested in theatre as a civic practice, the relationship between dancing and home, pilgrimages, and memory held in places.

I am committed to the practices of curiousity and wonder.

Since 2011, I have been based primarily in rural Oregon, where I have been collaboratively devising community-based intergenerational performances in the Illinois Valley. I have also worked closely with the Rural Organizing Project and Oregon Humanities.

I have a BA from the University of Chicago in Interdisciplinary Studies with a focus on linguistic anthropology and performativity; and I'm currently researching performance, place and feelings in the MA program in Theatre & Performance Studies at York University in Toronto, Ontario.
