I have been writing grants since 2014 after securing Vancouver’s OURO Collective’s first grant. I continue to work with the collective to this day, successfully receiving funding from the BC Arts Council, the Canada Council for the Arts, the City of Vancouver, and other foundation/corporate funders.
Since then, I have worked with emerging visual artists, dance performers, street dance artists, choreographers, singers, game developers, grass-roots organizations and public art galleries such as the Vancouver Street Dance Association and Lake Country Art Gallery (BC). I served on the Board of Outsiders & Others–a non-profit society focused on bringing non-traditional artists to the forefront– assisting in fundraising and development.
I am an interdisciplinary artist, with a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, and I’m currently a Master of Art in Art Education 2024 Cohort. I am a second-generation Italian Canadian immigrant gratefully living and practicing in Halifax on unceded Mi’kma’ki Territory in Nova Scotia and virtually on Coast Salish Territory in Vancouver.
I value sharing knowledge, creating a supportive environment, and I’m committed to empowering artists to succeed.
