I'm a Special Events Coordinator for a non-profit after school program in Chicago, IL. I have worked for arts non-profits for years: as a museum educator, arts policy researcher, curator, and at an artists colony in CA. I'm also a freelance writer and art critic, currently working on a screenplay and doing research for a documentary film. My traveling is most commonly for research related to writing and filmmaking projects, but occasionally I get away to visit friends and collaborators from graduate school and various art and filmmaking projects. When traveling I am always focused on where to get the best local food and would always appreciate a tip on a great museum show or play to see. I usually hit the ground running and pack my days full of activities when traveling and appreciate a clean, quiet place to crash after a long day of walking (and usually getting lost).
