I’m an artist working in collaboration with place. I make films, books, photos, and zines.
While working as an educator and exhibiting artist, I also develop long-term documentary projects that tell stories about communities and enlarge the common life. I organize free family picture days, storefront photo shows, live-narrated neighborhood home-movies, marathon polaroid portrait giveaways, and rural outdoor experimental cinema screenings.
Guided by the belief that sharing stories can create bridges across great differences, I collaborate with neighborhood organizations, public housing residents, churches, corner stores, families, small businesses, after-school programs, non-profits, libraries, and museums.
I work as an outreach associate for mnartists.org, focusing on serving artists in Minnesota's rural communities, small towns, and First Nations communities. I also work as a ghost tour guide in Duluth.
