I am an artist, activist, organizer, teacher, and Iraq War veteran based in Chicago. My multidimensional creative practice operates in a diversity of spaces and media as I seek out connections, poetics, and moments of beauty in order to construct narratives and meaning out of personal and collective traumas. I uses these narratives in the development of projects that expose and deconstruct systems of oppression and dehumanization.
I works collaboratively with a range of artists, veterans, activists, and art organizations and projects including Iraq Veterans Against the War, Justseeds Artist's Cooperative, National Veterans Art Museum, Warrior Writers, emerging Veteran Artists Movement, Dirty Canteen, and Prison & Neighborhood Arts Project.
