Observing. Exploring. Creating.

With a background in public policy, community planning, and ecological design, I aim to impact systems and structures, ultimately to benefit people and our environment. Intrigued by the intersection of art and science and the balance between built and natural, chaos and order, I am driven by a sense of possibility. I follow my curiosity.  

I’ve worked as a teacher on the US-Mexico border in Texas’ Rio Grande Valley, as a policy wonk in Washington, DC and as a land use planner in Wyoming. Currently I serve as Executive Director / Station manager of 89.1 KHOL in Jackson Hole, the only community radio station in Wyoming. In September 2019 I was a recipient of an artist residency at Playa in Summer Lake, Oregon. When not playing tunes or playing in the snow, I’m working to tell the story of America’s favorite poor gal, Li’l Liza Jane.
