About Me

I have more than a decade of experience in producing content, building platforms, and managing projects for museums. Focused on aligning opportunities with institutional priorities, I am savvy about leading collaborative teams to execute solutions.

My background is in journalism, graphic design, and arts management; and I have specialized in user research, creative technology, and documentary-style storytelling.


Bio

 

I focus on digital strategy and production for museums and cultural organizations. As a skilled and experienced project manager, I have a portfolio of projects that includes website design, video production, digital publishing, and platform design and development. With more than 10 years of experience working in and for museums, I have sophisticated and deep insights into how museums work. I approach collaboration with energy, organization, and nuance.

I am currently the Director of Digital Media at the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver. I worked for the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago for seven years, eventually earning the title Digital Media Director. I have also worked as a digital strategy and production consultant for the Andy Warhol Museum, the Denver Botanic Gardens, the University of Colorado, Art21, the Biennial of the Americas, the Denver Art Museum, and the J. Paul Getty Trust.

I am also a co-founder of Denver-based non-profit Tilt West, an organization whose mission is to promote critical discourse focused on arts and culture through live events and publishing efforts. I have taught undergraduate and graduate-level students as adjunct faculty at several colleges and universities, including the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Columbia College Chicago, and the University of Colorado Denver.
