When I learned to obey mystery, everything started making sense.
 
Sometimes I hear things.
 
I had an interdimensional experience while watching THE OA season one finale on Netflix. Is this too intense? I don’t care. It was after the recent July eclipse. It was three in the morning. I watched the characters perform the “movements” and felt an electrical current move through my body. I closed my eyes and went somewhere. I received a message about my own work. Storytelling can unlock our (dormant) power and (questioned) knowing because we each have a piece of the puzzle. We need to share information to release its collective force.
 
Sometimes I receive messages that feel like keys but when I turn the lock, it doesn’t budge. Maybe the key isn’t wrong—it contains the necessary raw materials—but first it must melt and forge into a new configuration. Like the complications on a watch. The movements are what make it go. Maybe it’s the artists who energize the gears.
 
 
I accompanied my short film PSYCHIC to screenings in Marfa (an obscure artist town in the West Texas high desert) and MoMA (the pinnacle brick-and-mortar capital of art). The film is about my real experience being scammed and healed by a storefront psychic as I hunted for the codes to hack out of my repeating childhood trauma. I was looking for financing to make the feature-length version but it turns out screening my shame in front of audiences was the key to becoming conscious of my own psychic abilities. It wasn’t the door I intended to find. But here I am.

My work and my passion is to bring ideas, art and experiences to places and spaces in new and novel ways and to foster conversations at the messy, wild and fertile intersection of our emotions and imaginations.

Food is my choice of education when it comes to learning about a culture. Unlike political regimes that might raze a culture, food is much more resistant to cultural change. We may speak different languages and have different perspectives, but we all need to eat.
