As an arts administrator, I study sustainable creative placemaking and adrienne marie brown’s emergent strategy as an anti-oppressive blueprint for uplifting and supporting artists, ensuring they have the resources to imagine, create, and celebrate an equitable and liberated future. I have worked as the General Manager of Sarasota Contemporary Dance, as well as in administrative roles at Koresh Dance Company, the National Constitution Center, and most recently at Movement Research in NYC.
