My Work + My Life:
I'm a designer, strategist, researcher, and graduate professor at Arizona State University. I study and practice community-engaged participatory and co(llaborative) methods, strategic (service) design, and the socio-cultural rhetoric of popular media. My goal is to empower everyday people, amplify their voices, and facilitate change to create a healthier, more equitable world.
I also founded and am executive director of Phoenix Mural Project, a grassroots community organization that captures artists’ oral histories and facilitates the creation of new visual expressions in public places.
