Shmee is a queer intermedia artist, storyteller, educator, and mentor whose work is driven by a commitment to creative emergence. Shmee’s passion for storytelling spans from personal narrative to cultural mythology and fosters a commitment to the myriad of tales of our time. Honoring story as a path into relationship, Shmee's projects connect self-discovery to meaning-making with the web of life. In collaboration with non-profit and community arts centers, Shmee offers art-based programs grounded in mindfulness, embodiment, ritual and creative play for self-inquiry, story weaving and community building. With a BA in Film Studies and MA in Depth Psychology, Shmee supports higher-ed through curriculum development as adjunct professor, teaching artist, and administrator at the California Institute for Integral Studies and the Holos Institute.
The art of Shmee has been seen at Bioneers, SF Fringe Festival, The Study of Dreams, Visionary Congress, Cucalores Film Festival, and Figment Arts, among others. Shmee is a company performer with Crescent Moon Theater Productions.
