I have often crossed paths with passionate, innovative, and dedicated persons and groups who understand the dire need for collective change to make a meaningful positive impact. Working with individual artists, non-profits, businesses, and institutions have allowed me to understand the power of collaboration. My roots in visual arts and architecture has also led to projects and commissions of a variety of mediums and scales. 

I am co-founder Axis Lab, a non-profit interdisciplinary arts organization based in Uptown, Chicago that engages in site-specific projects centered around equitable development in the neighborhood.

If you have a project and would like to reach out, please do so below. I look forward to hearing from you.
