I have lived my life as a dancer and artist in the USA. Over the past 15 - 20 years I have often exchanged my moving body for a seated one and placed my dextrous hands on a keyboard for purposes of securing financial stability while contributing to the systems that support the lives and works of artists besides myself. I've worked as a writer for magazine dance sections, directed scrappy performance nonprofits and artist-run spaces, and been program assistant for a major foundation/grantmaker. I have unique insight into the complex junction where individual artists, foundations, nonprofits, endowments, and culture meet.

I also offer consultation on work samples for applications, resumes/CV's, academic theses in the arts, and best practices for artist-run spaces. I spent time as a small child around people who spoke English as a second or third language, so I am good at helping non-native English speakers formulate their ideas for English-language readers. I am based in Philadelphia, PA but I work with clients over the internet so I can work with you wherever this virtual portal exists.
