I spent nearly eighteen years in Chicago as a public school art teacher, art critic, curator, activist, and artist. In graduate school I got involved in anticarceral activist projects, and my dissertation was on a social practice project that helped to close an Illinois supermax prison. I publish on issues of race, disability, and incarceration in relation to education and other institutions.

Teaching Interests & Areas
I see teaching as a form of expression (and learning as well). I endorse playful and emergent forms of collaboration, research, and making. I am an assistant professor of art education, and I draw on my own experiences as a teacher and my related research interests in forming pedagogy and curriculum.
Research Interests & Areas
My research interests are in contemporary art, race, disability, and incarceration, with a focus on educational institutions.
