I'm a producer, artist and marketing professional, living and working in Manhattan. I was educated at Barnard College and Parsons New School for Design. I work in luxury marketing and event production.

My artwork is multidisciplinary. I work in color and black and white, digital and film photo and collage, and am attracted to the themes of control, authenticity, artifice and performance. My passion for constructing fantastic visions includes producing creative events, from concepts to the last details of completion.

As an event producer and arts curator, I have managed various aspects of events in the corporate world and underground party scene, from intimate 10-person corporate breakfasts to family festivals to art showcases to thousand-attendee all-night club throwdowns. For over ten years, I have been a leader in nonprofit and alternative arts organizations, including the Kostume Kult, Action Arts League, Figment NYC and Thrill The World NYC, and the notorious street event Zombiecon NYC. Events I've produced and collaborated on have been featured in The New York Times, The Village Voice, The New York Post, The New York Daily News, Time Out New York, NBC New York, Huffington Post, Gothamist, BoingBoing, The Metro, AM New York, Flavorpill, LaughingSquid, The Horror Channel, and other media around the world.
