Arts Consultant and Researcher
I am an arts consultant, educator, and musician living in the beautiful city of Wiesbaden, Germany.
Prior to moving to consulting work in 2016, I served as Instructor and Director of the undergraduate arts administration program at Drury University in Missouri, U.S.A. I gained in-field cultural management experience as the Executive Director of the leading arts agency in Southwest Missouri, the Springfield Regional Arts Council.
A "pracademic," I focus my work and writing on connecting cultural management theories to practical tools and models that can be used by arts managers and artists.
