I create work from a deep curiosity in humanity, in life. I am interested in the strength of exposed vulnerabilities. And humor. I’m interested in all sorts of movement and aesthetics, especially drawn to the awkward, ‘folk’ and improvisatory.  My work arises from a continuous balance between pragmatic social engagement and awe of the logic of improvisational, abstract art.

My work deals with subtle, internal sensation as it relates to tacit/implicit knowledge and social sense-making. I deal with these topics through performance, workshops and intersubjective interview-research. My research is inter-
disciplinary, focused on the enactive approach as it relates to mindful, improvised dance, perspectives in biological sciences, cognitive science, phenomenology and meditation practice.

I teach and create work with both trained and untrained performers. I have worked with countless, astounding artists in professional and ‘underground’ contexts in New Orleans, NYC, the Blue Ridge Mountains, Bread and Puppet Theater (US), as well as working internationally (Puerto Rico, Germany, Canada, Palestine, Greece + Slovenia) – creating music, theater, dance, puppet shows, video, and creations which do not quite fit into a genre.
