About Me

"Art is not neutral. It either upholds or disrupts the status quo, advancing or regressing justice." - Adrienne Maree Brown 

I am a Brooklyn based curator of community engaged programming, facilitator, writer and an occasional dramaturg based in Brooklyn, NY.  I currently serve as the Education & Community Outreach Manager at Primary Stages. 

 

My work centers  inclusion, liberation and arts education for intergenerational queer communities of color with accessibility at the forefront.  I am a former Chicago transplant and has held positions at Free Street Theater, Victory Gardens Theater & StoryCorps Chicago. My independent creative work in Chicago included academic study & performance exploration of sex positivity as well as advocacy for sex worker rights.

 

In New York, I have served as the Research & Advocacy Coordinator at Dance/NYC, Outreach Associate at Pan Asian Rep , Community Programs Coordinator for National Queer Theater's Criminal Queerness Festival 2020 & Manager of Donor & Community Relations at JACK.   I have facilitated dialogues on intergenerational queer theater practice and community engagement with JACK, Theatre Communications Group and New York Theatre Workshop and have written for publications including American Theatre Magazine, The HowlRound Commons & Mixed Asian Media.  I am currently looking for opportunities to serve as a teaching artist, having served as a TA for Girl Be Heard this past Spring.
