Named a "curator to watch" by Chicago Magazine in 2013, I have curated exhibitions for numerous venues and groups, including the Contemporary Arts Council, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Franklin, What it Is, the MDW art fair and Center for Book Arts in New York. For over seven years, I was a curator in academic galleries at Columbia College Chicago and Dominican University; in 2014 I was a participating fellow at the Association of Academic Museums and Galleries Leadership Institute at Northwestern University. I developed innovative public programming as Director of Marketing and Programs at Art Chicago and NEXT: The Invitational Exhibition of Emerging Art, where I organized the inaugural Converge Chicago: Contemporary Curators Forums

Academically and curatorially, my broad areas of interest include emerging art, the history and theory of curatorial practice, art world studies, artists' books, and social practice; my curating has received the support of the Clinton Hill Foundation and Craft Research Fund, and I have presented my research at the College Art Association Annual Conference, as well as Open Engagement

My writing has appeared in journals, magazines and exhibition catalogs for numerous museums, organizations and artists.
