Hi. I’m the head of community engagement at SFMOMA. My job is to organize situations that get a lot of people talking to each other about art in public, and Open Space is one of those situations. Since launching this publication in 2006, I’ve had the honor to work with over 350 writers, artists, musicians, filmmakers, critics, curators, and so many other all around brilliantly energetic humans committed to art, literature, and making the world a better place to be.

I’m also a poet.
