In the past few years, my work has pivoted from art curation to climate work.

So far, I've focused on creating educational tools and engaging communities with resource-efficient decarbonization initiatives (thermal energy networks). 

Moving forward, I plan to dig deeper into urban design and planning with a focus on environmental and community resilience.

In the arts, my projects and research have centered environmental narratives, interdisciplinary art practices, and curatorial activism. Through this work, I’ve witnessed how connecting artists with communities can catalyze the kinds of critical conversation and collective dreaming that can help us envision more equitable, joyful futures.

I grew up in Vermont’s Mad River Valley and am currently based in Burlington, VT. I’ve also spent time living and learning in New York City, Cambridge, MA, and Florence, Italy.

I graduated from New York University with an Individualized B.A. titled “Art for Our Sake: Curatorial Activism and Cultural Institutions as Civic Assets” and a minor in Arts Politics from the NYU Tisch Department of Art & Public Policy.
