The role of a director and curator involves forethought and outstanding organizational and managerial skills. It is a unique balance as an advocate, fundraiser, project manager, writer, friend and producer. The role also carries with it a great responsibility of bringing people together and inspiring thought and creativity through the visual arts. As a director and curator I strive to set an example by better representing the many audiences of the community and world. In a university setting, I not only create group and solo exhibitions centered around the subjects taught in art and design, but I am also dedicated to incorporating themes of diversity. Exhibitions and art experiences that include subject matter related to gender, age, ethnicity and race, and internationalism are represented. They also include sexual orientation and gender identity, religious beliefs, and political points of view. Through my exhibitions, my desire is to provide a visual expression of diversity and enable the richest possible gallery experience to myriad audiences.
