Everything I do is a fusion of the arts and social sciences. I use art to inspire social change, communicate new ideas, and connect communities. I study communities and their ideas to create art.

I earned a BA in Anthropology and a BFA in Theatre Arts from Valdosta State University in Georgia, USA, then graduated from the Univerity of Florida with an interdisciplinary Master's in Visual Anthropology and Film Studies.

I am a theatre and applied arts producer, and I am the Creative Director of DreamQuilt LLC, the alternative theatre company that I founded, and its non-profit project ARTifacts, which aims to expand and enhance arts education with the power of the social sciences and to use arts to address social issues.

I am an award-winning author of anthropological papers, and I have had my dramatic work produced by playhouses and my mixed media art shown at galleries.

I am a lifelong performer: a vocalist, performance artist, puppeteer neo-vaudevillian, and aerialist.
