I am an artist, educator, and activist from the South! I have lived in South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, and Mississippi! I am passionate about photography, film, and working with young people! When I'm not working, I read a lot, drink too much coffee, and hang out with friends and my cat, Max!
I graduated with a B.A. in Entertainment Industry Studies and Film from Belmont University. In Nashville, I worked with galleries, schools, art house theatres, and community art initiatives to create unique programming that empowers young people through self-expression. I am now an art teacher in Jackson, MS, after being recruited by Teach For America.
WHAT I'VE DONE
Using my combined interests of social justice and visual culture, I create current, rigorous curricula designed intentionally to open student's creativity. My teaching focuses on representation, visibility, and intersectionality, acknowledging the flaws in traditional art education. I am available to help plan lessons for educators, non-profits, government, religious institutions, art galleries, summer camps, and after-school programs.
