Fun Stuff

Back home in Raleigh, I engage with my community is through nontraditional activism and experiential campaigns. Here's a collection of projects I've recently done for fun. My work has been featured in places like The New York Times, Washington Post, Forbes, The Guardian, Fortune Magazine, BBC, NPR, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, and The Atlantic.

Air Horn Orchestra

In 2016, I formed a really noisy band to protest North Carolina's House Bill 2. Learn how compressed air horns and Guinness World Records can create political change here.

North Carolina Museum of Art Micro Murals

The luxurious, one-of-a-kind cars and motorcycles of Rolling Sculpture: Art Deco Cars from the 1930s and ’40s are large in scale and big on style. However, the public art campaign I created to promote the exhibit—that is, 17 bite-size "micro murals" peppered around Raleigh—took the opposite approach.  Learn more about micro murals and my very red shoes here.

SHAME Mobile Mural

What happens when you install a 40-foot banner of your Governor with the word "SHAME" in the city center? Hint: He doesn't like it. 

#VoteRaleigh Campaign

This local reimagining of the "I Voted" sticker included a 12x12 mural, 1,000 buttons, and 10,000 stickers... and a parade. But did it work? Learn more here.
