I collaborate with youth, artists, activists using social practice strategies to create modern myth and archetypes through narrative, performance and ritual. Deploying film, theater, mural and sculpture to activate community. Making art collectively provides opportunities to make meaningful connections as a means to heal ourselves from the oppression we face historically, structurally and systemically. I develop and direct collaborative projects that provide access to arts to individuals and communities facing barriers imposed by oppressive systems. Becoming the person I desperately needed as a child and young adult is my core practice. I manifest the world I imagine through critical excavation of dominance and oppressive systems to decolonize and transform external and internalized systems using the process of creative expression to heal trauma, with the goal of liberation.
