As a catalyst, I strive to imbue my contributions as a collaborator, as an instigator, a facilitator, an artist, a gardener, a speaker – indeed, a citizen – with action and reflection, site specificity and conceptual resonance. This catalyzing practice is rooted in exchange, and the practice of connection, dialogue, mentorship, and knowledge sharing.  The result is a fluid conversation between the poetic and the literal, an effort that,  I believe, builds bridges between and creates a more communicative space among and for diverse audiences and perspectives.
