Artist Statement

As an intervention performance artist, I create experiences that are participatory, unpredictable, and potentially scandalous. I achieve this most frequently by situating private experiences in public spaces. My artistic work blurs the line between reality and performance, and as a potential outcome, reveals to audiences the performative in their personal realities. I am intrigued by truth, lies, and the uncomfortable moments in which this duality is negotiated in personal exchange.

Also…. I like to get naked on stage and exploit myself and my exes.
