I am an early childhood teacher and arts-based educational researcher in New York City. As a teacher I’ve worked with: P.S. 10K, Brooklyn Children’s Museum, Brooklyn Public Library, Imani House, Blue School, CAMBA, DOX Centre for Contemporary Art, Brooklyn Society for Ethical Culture and Open Source Gallery/Koko. I’m currently pursuing a MSEd in early childhood education at Brooklyn College, The City University of New York (CUNY). My artistic research into the role of creative processes in knowledge-making—as well as in questioning knowledge elitism—has been exhibited in contemporary art shows like “Oh, it is easy to be clever if one does not know all these questions” (Castlefield Gallery, Manchester, UK). I recently presented on the connections between arts-based research and citational politics at “To Research or Not To Research in the Post-Disciplinary Academy?” and at “Affinities + Urgencies in Language-based Artistic Research”. I’ve been a scholar-in-residence at the New York Public Library and an artist-in-residence at the Gowanus E-Waste Warehouse. My written work has been published in Performance Research and Ateliér, my translations of poetry by Calypso Editions. My writing was recently cited in Teaching and Learning the Arts in Higher Education with Technology (Springer, 2021). My latest piece of writing “All-American Siddhartha: Whitewashing Buddha’s Childhood,” in collaboration with the Critical Childhoods and Youth Studies Collective (CCYSC), can be found here.
