I live in the mountains of Western North Carolina, outside of Asheville with my husband and dog. I work as an artist, educator and community organizer, specializing in community-based arts. For years I worked with different communities to create theater projects based on personal narratives, oral history interviews and community stories. Lately I've been exploring more digital media projects and am currently working on a documentary film about the textile industry in the south.
Love to travel and want to do more of it. I prefer to stay in real neighborhoods where people work and live, than hotels in tourist or business districts. Through my work I've been able to become a short term resident in tiny towns and big cities. One of my favorite things to do is to walk around a new place and just take things in.
