I studied Media Art at the Die Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst Leipzig [HGB], and lived in Germany–Berlin, Leipzig, Boehlen, Aachen–from throughout the 90s. During this time I also helped manage the Thueringische Sommer Akademie for eight years. SoAk celebrates its 25th anniversary in 2016.
Upon returning to New York in 2000, a wonderful mixture of timing and fate lead me to work at BAM a year after its superb repertory film program BAMcinématek was established. I was the Senior Publicity Manager from 2001-2009. From 2009 to 2012 I was the Senior Publicist for the Whitney museum, one of my favorite places in New York. At the Whitney I worked on two Biennials, including the 2012 edition which included an amazing array of films, dance performances, and music. Since June 2012 I have been the Communications Director for The Drawing Center, a gem of a museum in Soho.
Among other creative pursuits I write poetry (TheDiagram.com and Diagram.2 Art.Text.Schematic, The Second Print Anthology, 2006, ed. Ander Monson ). My third poetry chapbook Between My Teeth was completed in April 2009. And my creative partner Drew Pisarra and I create works as Saint Flashlight.
I live with my husband Craig Howarth and our cat Tempurra in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn, New York.
