I’m that rare artist with a knack for project management, and I’ve honed these skills into a career as a museum exhibition designer.

​My studio, ETCxDesign, works with museums, libraries, and cultural centers to design immersive environments for social impact. Our work focuses on telling stories in three-dimensional space beyond the book on a wall. We center creating meaningful learning environments and experiences of connection over trendy spectacles.​

​The studio based in Los Angeles, California.
