Multi-disciplinary artist, designer, mystic and polymath living in NYC.

Inspired by art, technology, and music, my visual and design work utilizes a deep knowledge of multiple visual languages including printmaking, illustration and photography. After dropping out of the fashion design program at Parsons School of Design — a lifelong autodidact — I sought out ways of learning outside of traditional models of education.

A longstanding fixture in local nightlife, I have branded, produced, and curated events for over a decade in NYC, focusing on up-and-coming artists in electronic music. Driven by a passion for building creative community and developing new talent; I  conjure unflinchingly supportive social spaces where artists collaborate and thrive. These collective communities include: Lowbrow Society for the Arts, Saturn Bound, and international electronic music collective, SISTER; as well as free community DJ workshops in Brooklyn as hone.social.

My work has been featured in the New York Times, Red Bull Music Academy, CTM Festival, The FADER, XLR8R, THUMP, Resident Advisor, Crack Magazine, The Village Voice, Autostraddle, Out Magazine, and many others.

Afterhours, I teach at hone.social, DJ as Circe and tend to a small forest of plants.🌱 🌱🌱
