As an artist, educator, and documentarian, I am driven to foster work that combines and confounds notions of activism, art production and audience experience. My interdisciplinary practice spans video, installation, socially-engaged art and performance. I hold an MFA in Documentary Media and an MA in Adult Education and Community Development. I live, play, dream and work in Toronto on the traditional territory of the Wendat, Haudenosaunee, Anishinabek, and the Mississaugas of the New Credit First Nation.
