I live to amplify the light of others. With over 30 years of experience in the visual arts in leadership roles that span the commercial to the institutional, I delight in bringing creative and intelligent voices to the table to realize once-unthinkable dreams. Currently, I'm developing a seasonal creative wandering workshop program for curious minds. Previous roles include Director of Visual Arts at Sun Valley Center for the Arts where I engaged audiences through a multidisciplinary approach to critical issues such as biodiversity, women’s rights and land preservation. This drew the attention of the Portland Art Museum where I was honored to be the first Curator of Northwest Art, re-igniting the museum’s focus on contemporary art from the region. More recently I served as Director of the Bolinas Museum for nearly 10 years where my experience contributed to an increasingly vibrant museum.

I've always found comfort in playing at the edges and seeking wisdom in the margins in both my professional and personal life.
