My collaborators shape the way I think and inspire my daily life.  I simply can not note all of them but acknowledge those who have especially transformed me:

THE PROJECT ROOM
What we do.  Why we do it.

THE PROJECT ROOM was a gathering place and online platform presenting work, ideas, and people that inform our understanding of creativity in contemporary life.  Inspired by it's interdisciplinary approach and dedication to creative process, I began volunteering at TPR in 2012, and soon stepped into the roles as business manager and programs assistant.  In 2015, I served as TPR's Director replacing founder Jess Van Nostrand when she took a position as Assistant Director of Public Programs at the New York MoMA.  www.projectroomseattle.org.

SEAWORTHY is a curatorial collective dedicated to collaboration, experimentation, and social engagement.  Devon Midori Hale, Eric J. Olson, and I founded SEAWORTHY in 2013 to host experiences that nurture emerging and under-recognized artists, provide an environment to incubate new ideas, and encourage collaboration.  SEAWORTHY was hosted and supported by Canoe Social Club from July-December 2013.  We are currently afloat, connecting artists with venues based on a project's intention, aim, and engagement.  www.seaworthyart.org
