intent:
My work is a public, multidisciplinary practice of sculpture, print, video, intervention, independent history research and writing, and education through a social/environmental justice lens. I practice creative acts publicly as a pedagogical counter-measure against oppression, and personally as a life strategy for well-being. My current focus is on projects which explore obscured and/or forgotten histories - those of humans and of other animals.

I'm currently the interim Curator and Exhibition Designer for the West Virgina Mine Wars Museum in Matewan, WV (opening in May 2015). I have been an active member of the Justseeds Artists' Cooperative since 2007.
