I live and work in Tiohtià:ke / Montréal, QC, on unceded Indigenous lands. I am a PhD student in Communication Studies at Concordia University, working under the supervision of Dr. Jeremy Stolow. I am currently a researcher in the Archive/Counter-Archive network and a member of the Centre for Sensory Studies.
Prior to relocating to Montréal, I was based in Boston, MA, where I taught courses in art history, the humanities and the visual arts at Tufts University, Emerson College, Montserrat College of Art and New England College. My published works include a book, The Distances Between Us, published by Trëma Forlag, and articles in Art New England and Big, Red & Shiny. I presented at conferences in the US and Canada, and my work was supported by grants and fellowships from Assets for Artists / Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, Creative Capital / Warhol Foundation Arts Writers Grant Program, and Emerson College. I curated exhibitions at the Photographic Resource Center, the Dorchester Art Project, and the New Art Center in Newton, as well as in various independent spaces. My visual projects were shown internationally, including solo shows at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Danforth Art Museum, and in group shows at the Griffin Museum of Photography and the Rourke Art Museum, among others. My visual work is held in permanent collections that include the Danforth Art Museum, the SGCI Archives in the Zuckerman Museum of Art and the Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta, et al.
I hold an MFA from Tufts University, and a BFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston @ Tufts University.
I work in and around photography. My current research examines how performance shapes visual cultures of mental health experiences, both in the past and the present day. In addition to traditional scholarly output, I maintain visual arts and critical-curatorial practices and am committed to creating a more just educational experience through radical pedagogical practices.

Tiohtià:ke / Montréal, QC is located on the ancestral and unceded lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation, which has long been a site of meeting and exchange among many First Nations, including the Kanien’kehá:ka of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, Huron/Wendat, Abenaki, and Anishinaabeg. As a visitor, I acknowledge the sacred land where I live and work, and pay respect to the Kanien’kehá:ka elders past and present. This land has been and continues to be home to the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation, rightful guardians of these lands and waters, who live here today as they have for 12,000 years.
