"I combine intimacy, comedy, wisdom, and change.
Create humor from challenge.
Use sweetness preemptively. Seek flow over force.
Channel delight to ignite insight.
It's often deceptively simple; undefended and shared joy is revolutionary.
I used to think what broke my heart the most was people living in pain. It's not. It's your unlived life: unspoken I-love-you's, undanced dances, unfelt feelings, ungiven gifts, untold tales, ungiggled giggles, even your undoodled doodles (which are the seeds of your next brilliant idea.).
I make participatory artworks --performances and installations -- to get as much of your (and my) undoneness done as we can... while we're here, now, together."
