I grew up in Chicago and completed my BA in fine arts and acting at New York University, where my practice was focused around themes of female identity. Although these interests still seep into my work, my current focus is on the sense of smell. My recent practice investigates the neurological and psychological relationships between the sense of smell and the other senses, the potential for scent to be used in behaviour manipulation, and the affect of culture and environment on one’s use and understanding of smell.
