About


 









“Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration's shove or society's kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It's all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager.”

/ Susan Sontag

Through Young Space, a contemporary arts curatorial platform I founded in 2014, I’ve become part of an extensive global network of artists, gallerists, collectors, curators, and creatives. Raised in the rural Midwest in a family of artists and largely based there until 2021, I understand the importance of staying in touch and engaging with collectors, artists, audiences, and stakeholders in a globalized, dispersed art world. Now, based in Scotland, I provide remote freelance communications and editorial services and strategy consultation for art galleries, organizations, and publications.

I have a multifaceted background in contemporary art curating, publishing, research, and communications, and I enjoy working with small teams in both the commercial and nonprofit sectors. In my spare time, you’ll find me traveling, visiting exhibitions, hiking coastal and mountain paths, marveling at architecture and heritage, or working on my passion project Dovetail Magazine.

As a curator and facilitator of numerous exhibitions independently and in collaboration with international galleries, museums, and collectives, I understand that a strong social media and communications strategy is a bridge between public relations, internal staff, audiences, artists, collectors, and other stakeholders.
