Statement

Born in the Appalachian mountains of Kentucky to a Scotch-Irish-Cherokee family, I spent the first 35 years of  life pursuing the corporate path to happiness.  Today, I am an interdisciplinary artist who shows and performs internationally.  My work is devoted to investigating the path of individual self-actualization both inside and outside conformist-based societal norms. Outsider positioning within the dominant cultural narratives, “Q” politics and politics of representation are major themes in my work.  I am currently completing my MFA at University of Kentucky and collaborating on a new work of experimental theater with internationally acclaimed writer, performance artist and cultural icon of the New York Underground, Penny Arcade.
