FACILITATE.

As a professor, youth worker, and professional development consultant, I see my role as the DJ -- I get things started with a certain tune (topic) and stay responsive to the participants to keep the energy and conversation going so that more voices are heard and more knowledge is shared and built.

I facilitate workshops that allow participants to examine their own practice and explore new strategies that center inclusive and decolonized arts as part of a transformative educational environment.
