As an artist, scholar, and educator, I am passionate about the possibilities emerging through the intersections of arts, education, and technology. I believe such intersections can facilitate and provoke critical interfaces across human relationships, and I’m particularly interested in the arts’ potential to be a nexus for community development and social innovation.

My primary research areas include arts-based educational research, youth media, digital storytelling, community art education, visual research methodologies, and digital-mediated arts practice. My current scholarship explores ways of envisioning community as the space of knowledge production where artful social innovations and pedagogical relations can be re-imagined. I am a strong advocate of practice-led research and community engagement.

I live in North Vancouver, British Columbia on the unceded traditional territories of the xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl ̓ ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. I would like to thank the Coast Salish people for the opportunity to learn, share, and grow on their traditional territory.
