“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 and facilitated between 2014 and 2022, I’ve become part of an extensive global network of artists, gallerists, collectors, curators, and creatives. 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. Now, based in Scotland, I run Dovetail Magazine, an online publication focused on pathways between visual art and place. I am currently Contributing Editor for Colossal and communications strategist for The Bubbler at Madison Public Library.
