producer, Writer, and anthropologist in Orlando, Florida
Everything I do is a fusion of the arts and social sciences. I use art to inspire social change, express new ideas, and connect people. I study communities and their ideas to create art.
I am a professional artist and communicator based in Orlando, Florida.
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.
