I am an artist and educator. I use a variety of digital and physical media to tell stories of people and places. I teach digital storytelling to diverse communities and use participatory methods to share authentic narratives of everyday life. I work primarily on projects that use art and technology to enrich individuals and strengthen communities. I am committed to art that is transformative. I view beauty and impact as reciprocal forces. I believe in radical collaboration and in partnerships that are strategic and mutually beneficial.
I am the director and co-founder of Picture Me Here, a participatory digital storytelling program for refugees and immigrants in the US. I teach new media at the university and community levels and consult with nonprofits, businesses, and foundations on using digital technologies for effective communication. I have a MFA in Emerging Digital Practice from the University of Denver and a BFA in Photography from Colorado State University. I have exhibited my work internationally and curated Picture Me Here exhibits in the US and Nepal.
