I'm passionate about connecting people to ideas, art, experiences, and opportunities. Always curious and forever learning, I thrive on the power of storytelling to facilitate creativity and change, bridge communities, and foster collaboration.

I was raised in the Upper Midwest in a family of artists and pursued study in Fine Art and the History of Art at the University of Wisconsin and the University of Edinburgh, after which I returned to my hometown to develop independent work, interspersed with short stints elsewhere and increasingly nomadic travel for curatorial projects. Through Young Space, a contemporary arts curatorial platform I founded and facilitated since 2014, I’ve become part of an extensive global network of artists, gallerists, collectors, curators, and creatives, which continually inspires me.

Young Space sends a weekly curated digest of exhibitions, artist opportunities, and special features on Substack.

Now, I run Dovetail Magazine, an online publication focused on pathways between visual art and place. I am currently the lead contributing editor for Colossal. I also occasionally curate exhibitions independently, in collaboration with galleries and artist-run initiatives.
