Collaborative haiku animation

Designed and led a video poetry animation workshop as part of Kamari Bright’s AWP offsite event: Off the Page. This was an introductory, hands-on workshop highlighting non-traditional expressions of poetry. Participants had a chance to experience animation poetry, embodied movement poetry, and video poetry in a lively, drop-in setting.

In addition to teaching the animation workshop, I was a liaison between the artist organizing the event and the Northwest Film Forum, arranging contract details, payment split, and bringing in a drink special inspired by a poem. This program was sponsored by Black Cinema Collective and co-presented with Cadence Video Poetry Festival.


A writer and curator exploring the liminal spaces of the literary arts. I am the author of two chapbooks and have fiction, reviews, and poetry published widely. My interest in how words can be experienced has led to solo work and collaborations to create installations, music performances, broadsides, karaoke, and video poetry. I founded and directed Till, a literary organization that offered an annual writing residency, and am currently co-director of Cadence Video Poetry Festival at Northwest Film Forum.


Approaching communications and creative direction with a storyteller’s craft and a poet’s ear.

My unique blend of marketing, programming, and writing skills allows me to understand and connect with a wide spectrum of audiences. I have defined and produced end-to-end experiences for artists, businesses, consumers, and stakeholders while growing followings and margins across industries.
