I can bring my experience both as a facilitator, instructor, and event producer to your project. I can research and prepare an original course on a topic or conduct information finding sessions for tasks such as group brainstorming or collaborative problem solving.

My experience:

My work has been featured in museum shows at MoMA P.S.1, the Henry Art Gallery, and Frye Art Museum. I have produced events in Vancouver BC, Seattle, Chicago, Portland, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and New York.

I have designed, produced, and managed performance series including Writers on Work (2004), Resuscitating Utopia (2005), Jack Straw Writers (2007). In addition, I have planned and hosted conference such as the Water/Sewer Commissioners Summer Conference 1995 and The Unassociated Writing Conference and Dance Party (2005). I regularly conduct facilitation sessions in brainstorming and problem discovery and identification.
