Overview

I'm a curator and editor based in Brooklyn, NY.

My areas of expertise include art and architectural history, performance studies, media studies, cultural studies, international development, and sociology. I received my BA from UC Berkeley, and my MA from Brown University. I have been working as a freelance writer and editor for 6+ years.
