I'm an Anishinaabe artist, organizer, and digital strategist. As an interdisciplinary designer, I work with a cohort of artists that do racial justice popular education and organizing, seeking ways to creatively innovate social-change work. I'm a founding member and artistic director of the ROVE project, a united effort of Rhymesayers Entertainment, community organizers, and artists utilizing hip hop to impact our electoral process.
I have my own design practice, train people on strategic communications and design and run social media and narrative work for campaigns and nonprofits. I've worked on everything from municipal to statewide campaigns.
I attended the University of Minnesota and studied American Indian Studies and Political Science.
