What attracted you to Intermedia Arts?
It is inclusive, ambitious, and energizing. I believe I can meld my two great passions here: my own artistic production as well as the production of other artists, and my enduring passion for creating spaces for democratic participation.
Why is art important?
Art has changed my life in too many ways to count. Art gives me a lens from which to view the world and a framework from which to function. Art for me is both product and process, solitary yet deeply collective, ever changing and rapid-paced yet sometimes glacial in its revelatory power. Art has given me insight into humanity. My hope is that the arts continue to provide us with experiences that are astonishing and transformative.
What drives your work?
The core values that are most important to me in my workplace are a deep respect for human capacity, an expectation of excellence as driven by an internal sense of justice and fairness, and a sense of fluidity in relationship to the future. I see Intermedia Arts as possessing these values and I appreciate the fact that Intermedia Arts mirrors my civic commitment to expansive possibilities.
What do you look forward to in terms of leading this organization?
I look forward to serving in a leadership role as a practicing artist and by engaging the community in my leadership and decision-making processes. I look forward to to walking lightly into the conversation, with my pen in hand and heart open. I’m honored to join the ongoing discussion about this transformational work.”
