Live at the Archway gets some love in the Brooklyn Daily Eaglehttp://www.brooklyneagle.com/articles/2016/7/26/live-archway-under-manhattan-bridge-dumbo
Curated by myself and Tanya Rynd of Superfine, Live at the Archway is a weekly cabaret below the Manhattan Bridge — with free performances, beer & wine from our landlocked Lighthouse, and a magical, only-in-DUMBO setting from June through September. View the 2016 program here.
Createquity is a research-backed investigation of the most important issues in the arts and what we, collectively and individually, can do about them. From 2015-2016, I served on the editorial team, writing feature articles on cultural equity, and arts participation & television consumption, writing research spotlights, and writing the monthly newsroom. I am now an associate contributor.
I currently serve as the Director of Marketing & Events for the DUMBO Improvement District.
One of New York’s seventy-two Business Improvement Districts, the DUMBO Improvement District advocates for (and beautifies!) the neighborhood, and brings its residents, tenants and visitors together through music, art & community programs.
As Director of Marketing and Events, I am responsible for curating & producing programming for the neighborhood’s public spaces, from community amenities, such as Farmers Markets and outdoor fitness, to public art, installations and performances.
It’s Christmas, and two friends go on vacation. They don’t go to the same place though. One of them travels to India for the first time; the other one travels, as she does every Christmas, to the Basque Country. Before leaving, they realize two things: first, that they both travel on the exact same dates and, second, that in both places it gets dark at the same time. They then decide to set a daily date: every day, at around 5pm, they talk to each other.

Founded in 2006, Make Music New York, “the largest music event ever to grace Gotham” (Metro New York), is a unique festival of free concerts in public spaces throughout the five boroughs of New York City, all on June 21st, the first day of summer. MMNY takes place simultaneously with similar festivities in more than 460 cities around the world — a global celebration of music making. Make Music New York also produces Make Music Winter, a series of twelve innovative musical parades throughout Manhattan and Brooklyn on December 21, the winter solstice. I served as Director of Operations of MMNY from 2013-2015.
The Village Halloween Parade, inaugurated in 1974, is the largest of its kind in the United States. Every year it brings together tens of thousands of participants – from puppet troupes to floats to individual costumed New Yorkers – in a celebration of creativity. I served as associate producer & volunteer coordinator, working on section one (puppets!) with Jeanne Fleming and Processional Arts Workshop, from 2010-2015.
