I am a Philadelphia-based educator, curator and writer whose work focuses on critical intersections of contemporary art and health. 

As Director of Humanities at Thomas Jefferson University, I collaborate with colleagues and students to infuse the arts and humanities into health professions education at Jefferson. This effort takes shape across an academic program of humanities selective courses and a research concentration for medical students at Sidney Kimmel Medical College; co-curricular programming for students across professions including nursing and public health; and public and patient-facing programming. Our work is often carried out in partnership with local arts organizations.

Previously, I was Curator and Art in Health Program Director at the University of South Florida Contemporary Art Museum, where I organized exhibitions and interdisciplinary educational programs including a series of observation training workshops for health professions students. As Visual Art Critic for the alternative newsweekly Creative Loafing, I wrote more than 250 exhibition reviews and feature stories over a decade and have been a regular contributor to other publications. I am a former co-host and freelance producer for WEDU Arts Plus, a public television program produced by Florida PBS affiliate WEDU.

I received a BA in Studio Art with Honors from Williams College, an MA in Media Studies from the New School, and an MA in Art History from the University of South Florida. I am currently a PhD student in Art History at Tyler School of Art & Architecture at Temple University.
