Natural light, smiling eyes, a little drama...I love my people. And I love how my camera, my heart and my eyes see them.

Public Coffee is a mobile coffee shop. It visits various neighborhoods throughout Denver to serve coffee and start good conversations. Public Coffee is an open community hub – a toolbox to be used and shared by everyone to build our communities they way we wish to see them.

I've been able to work on this project with some fabulous people: Faith Anne Williams, Marie Janiswezski, Jeff, Wahl, Teresa Peterson, Katie Parks, Katie Elrich, Lawrence Poh and meet so many others. We've started conversations all over Denver Metro Area, including Tedx Mile High, Athmar Park, Mile High Mentors Walk, Edge Gallery and MCA Denver.

We've been operational since June 2013 and are always looking for more collaborators.

Find out where Public Coffee will go next!


Ground by the cup and made via pour over drip method using V60 or Aeropress. We also make Toddy for hot days.




At Tedx Mile High we served around 500 people.




Find someone, grab a free cup of coffee, and start a conversation.




Tedx Mile High was our first trial of the "Tandem Cups" program, where we take 2 cups, tie them together with a prompt in between and encourage people to find a partner and start a conversation.




Here's one of our 32 prompts.




At Tedx Mile High - these guys just met. And are super excited to share a cup of coffee.




Same with these ladies. (Check out the V60 equipment on the table.)




And the people tied to this handshake.




And this lady who is talking with Marie. They just met!




A coffee cheers.




Katie and Jeff probably have had too much coffee.




Tandem Cup Making Bee - kinda like an ol' quilting bee.

Mile High Mentors Walk - thanks, Moonshot roasters, local in Denver, for donating coffee so we can host free coffee!




Mile High Mentor's Walk - Marie and Teresa - ready to pour you some coffee!

On May 8, 2010, over 30 creatives and 400 people introduced themselves to each other at Taxi in Denver, CO.

Born out of a series of conversations among three MCA Denver employees, So, I Work in an Art Museum presents work from eight different artists working in five different art museums across central and Western Colorado. The artists were asked to create work that addresses the many facets of being an artist working in an art museum. The various works evolved through exploring the inspirations, observations and relationships the artists-as-workers experience while in a museum. Although reflective of individual ideas, when shown together, these works for a collective and critical voice from artists who share an intimate connection with the formal art institution.

A literal representation of the objects it took to create this diptych, these photographs also represent the act of creating and showing art: to envision something out of nothing - then finding the means in which to do so.

A gallery space at MCA Denver filled with all of the objects it took to make this photograph.
