• Curator, photographer, strategist, marketing analyst, fund raiser, writer, urban planner, environmental scientist, and community activist/organizer
• I am passionate about community engagement, enhancement, and empowerment. I believe participatory art, education, and green spaces, celebrating diversity in culture, race, sexual gender and orientation, economic status, and age, along with evolving urban design techniques that include individual/group food production in all living and workspaces, are the keys to achieving these goals. No one should be left out. No idea is insignificant. We are stronger and happier citizens when we work, live, and play together, in aesthetically pleasing environments.
