With 11 years of experience as an artist, grantmaker, administrator and advocate in the artistic sector of the San Francisco Bay Area, I am seasoned in the local cultural landscape. Although I am knowledgeable in a wide breadth of topics, my specialties include: applying for grants, grant strategy, grantwriting and building a relationship with funders; grantmaking and ensuring your grants have the maximum impact; artist development & support; event design & implementation; and workshop facilitation. I was named one of SF Weekly’s 16 Artists To Watch in 2016 and I am currently an Association for Performing Arts Presenters’ Leadership Fellow. I formerly worked with San Francisco Foundation’s Art & Culture program and has reviewed applications for San Francisco Arts Commission, City of Berkeley and Endeavor Foundation for the Arts. I have led artist-focused workshops for the National Queer Arts Festival, Intersection for the Arts, the East Bay Community Foundation, Center for Cultural Innovation and San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music, and brought Bay Area queer arts to the attention of national funders by co-facilitating Queering the Arts: Aesthetics and Economies at the Grantmakers in the Arts annual 2012 conference.
