Beauty in a box.

Comes with a secret

Deep in the lining of her packaging

She conceals the origins of her birth

Fearing a discovery that destroys the facade and sends some running for the hills of normalcy

See a person

A radical of the heart and pacifist of the mind, I spend much of my time contemplating the degrees of difference between humans, other animals and non-living things. Committed to changing the world through both overt and subversive techniques I am a writer, farmer, educator, performer and community organizer who uses the tools of artistic expression, urban agriculture and social awareness to impact change and foster a sense of empathy and inter-being in local urban communities. I am committed raising my voice and using the power of art to spark major social change in the Capital Region and the larger world.
