My work catches flame at the intersections of multidisciplinary art, ceremony and ritual, community and connection, improvisation and radical vulnerability. I am a Queens, NYC born-and-raised poetic alchemist, performer, curator, and sacred space-holder; author of 4 poetry and prose collections; Director of Public Programs at Socrates Sculpture Park; and creator of original event experiences such as Nature of the Muse, Church of the Sacred Body, and How We Create & How We Cope: Intersections of Art & Mental Illness.

Creating intimacy among so-called strangers thrills me— and whether it is facilitating for a small gathering or emceeing at an outdoor event for hundreds of people, I seek to inspire energetic safe spaces of enthusiasm, inclusiveness, empathy, exploration, and INFINITE HEART.

My work infuses poetry, storytelling, theatre/movement, and music— but it’s also about one-to-one direct connections, person to person. I am a mentor, host and public speaker, organizer and connector, staunch advocate for the youth, arts and culture, mental health, healing by sharing, and anyone who dares to go their Own Way.

I do the admin work and the dirty work. No task is above or below me— humility and raw passion drive me as a bridgewalker and servant of the people. I’ve been everything from a digital project manager to bike messenger to magazine editor to dog handler, and have been performing and making art of all kinds since I was a kid.

I can promise you that I’ll ignite everything and anything I touch.

Let’s see what we can light up together…

i have been creating art– writing, drawing, book-making, singing, dancing, imagining my own worlds– for as long as i can remember, expressly to make sense of my vivid mental and emotional landscapes, quite literally to survive my everyday traversal of them {map-making comes in handy}, and to bridge deeper connections to my fellow spirits + humanimals.

i started my professional career as an arts journalist + editor and grew to (re)discover my passionate sensitivity for community organizing, holding and facilitating space, and of course returning to my lifelong love of multi/cross-disciplinary performance.

my work is based at the core in communion via the written and spoken word and its theatrical vocalities– four full-length books of poetry + prose and countless live performances charged with immersive imagery, myth + spiritual dynamism; thunderously edgy, honest + rooted in reverence to the natural world.

my practice also extends always into the public sphere– to ephemeral poetry graffiti, whimsical + ritualistic art installations, and lovingly curated gatherings of creative souls, from intimate to massive, dedicated to the expression, experimentation, evolution, and enjoyment of all– both in my longtime independent practice in venues across queens + NYC, and since late 2016, as director of public programs at LIC’s socrates sculpture park {where i grew up playing + exploring, two blocks from my childhood home}.

i am first and foremost a torchbearer, alchemical storyteller, and servant of the people– in addition to a very proud queens, NYC native + descendent of southern italian immigrants {polignano a mare!}. art is my lifeblood and lifeline, and an absolute necessity for the survival turned thrival of these challenging + transformative times we all are called to navigate– both bravely + vulnerably, both inwardly + outwardly.
