Greetings and welcome to my little corner of the Internet world. Thank you for stopping by manouchekaceleste.com!

While I spend great energy challenging categorizations and titles in my work and life, you will find a few here, designed to help you navigate the virtual space.  I hope this website will be a resource that will lead you to other helpful resources. It will be updated regularly, so do check back in for new projects, announcements, and resources. Also, see the links to connect via social media and to contact me regarding my work, including invitations to visit your campus or community. Thank you again for visiting. Have a fantastic day!
