As a science-focused artist and visual anthropologist, I work with digital media and performance forms to explore sociocultural issues and to empower marginalized people. I also use visual arts as a means of anthropological inquiry.
I built my production agency, DreamQuilt LLC, to provide socially conscious artistic and cultural expression to the Gainesville, Florida community. Its primary project, ARTifacts, offered immersive, culturally competent, and homegrown entertainment in the fields of performing, visual, and alternative arts. DreamQuilt was honored and recognized by local government and non-profit organizations.
I’ve also produced a documentary short about anti-violence movements. This film, “A Million Moments,” ties into my broader study of bullying, intimate partner abuse, and other forms of interpersonal violence. I regularly write about these topics on Medium.
Currently, I work as a full-time writer, and I am blessed to be able to research and write about a broad range of fascinating topics. I regularly collaborate with both clients and colleagues to explore the depths of the human experience, share their stories, and bring an anthropological approach to the topic at hand.
