Based in New York, I am an independent communication designer and student of art and the social sciences at the City University of New York. I am primarily interested in researching urbanism, public space and their relationship to visual media and participatory culture. In addition to design I have past experience in writing, project consultation, volunteerism, informal pedagogy, and public social art practice.
Currently I am a content development contributor / intern at The City Atlas, an online project of CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities and Artist As Citizen at Hunter College. With City Atlas I research, write, and blog about New York's sustainable lived culture and conduct interviews with innovative cultural producers and designers who work with communities to explore urban issues.
In addition I am part of a sustainability education and dialogue project GREENSPACENYC. As Public Programming Coordinator, I develop and curates free public programming in collaboration with local artists, architects, urbanists, designers, activists, teachers, and advocates.
In the winter of 2012, I was also a design, writing and research contributor to #searchunderoccupy, a online archive and exhibit documenting The New School's engagement with Ocuppy Wall Street.
