I believe that creativity is about connection. Creativity is about connecting different ideas and people, and finding their shared purpose to start something new.
I believe that art has the power to transform the spaces we share with one another—physical, mental, and emotional.
I believe that art is a power that is uniquely and innately human. Out of an estimated 8.7 million animal species on Earth, we are the only ones who attempt to record our image and the images of others.
I believe in art as our uniquely human way of creating landmarks and the cultural cornerstones of who we are. This is what I do. I'm excited to share how with you.
Process and purpose are interdependent. I strive to make work that is thought-provoking, substantial, and masterfully done.
Public artworks become more than the artist. They become cultural landmarks that signify who we are to the world.
I curate shows that foster community engagement. Creativity is about connection. Access to creative learning and experiences raises the bar for everyone.
In the king's court, only the jesters get away with critiquing the king. They do not seek the king's approval, and so they have it. They are honest, because they can make fun of themselves.
I challenge conventional wisdom and work frequently between different--often disjointed--disciplines. I'm a "Jen" of all trades, master of some, enough to be dangerous on others. I care about understanding the nuts and bolts of what I'm doing and what the effects are. You might enjoy knowing that I built this experience for you, from the website to the logo and branding.

Lean methods practitioner. While I only consult in/for the arts these days and not for other industries' operations, I am forever a disgustingly precise human being. I alphabetize my spices.
