The Project Room was a Seattle based art non-profit (2011-2015) that served as a gathering place and online platform presenting work, ideas, and people that inform our understanding of creativity in contemporary life.  The Project Room focused on creative works-in-progress and created a dynamic collection of public programs in response to specific themes and big questions such as "Why Do We Make Things" and "How Are We Remembered".  The Project Room aimed to be inclusive and cross-disciplinary in all of its endeavors. In addition to the arts, programs feature technology, culture, history, geography, industry, and other areas that intersect with the specific question in focus.

Inspired by The Project Room's (TPR) 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.  As Director of the 2015 events, programs, monthly podcasts and literary projects, I curated programming around the big question, “How Are We Remembered?” and the topics: privacy, monuments and transformation. You can learn more about individual events and projects I produced on the TPR website.
