Haas is a movement artist, director, facilitator, builder and writer. They received a B.A. in Performance Art from Columbia College Chicago in 2001 and an M.F.A. in Dance at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign in 2011. They have received awards, such as the Roy Acuff Chair of Excellence Fellowship, and residencies at art hubs, such as Links Hall in Chicago, IL. Haas's work has been written about in the Chicago Tribune, was broadcast on Channel 23 by New Chinese Media and has been honored, multiple times, as Chicago Reader Critic's Choice.
After finishing graduate school, Haas began a three-year art/work traveling experiment inside a Mobile Performance Dwelling (MPD) that they built through EcoDance, a grassroots organization they co-founded in 2011 that researched, designed and built live/work mobile stages. In August 2014 Haas stopped their travels to homestead on unincorporated land in northern Arizona. There they opened Rosie’s Ranch, which served as an informal art residency and retreat space that included alternative building from December 2015 to January 2021. They currently live within the traditional territory of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe and the O'odham peoples, today known as the Salt River Pima-Maricopa Indian Community, the Gila River Indian Community, the Ak-Chin Indian Community and the Tohono O'odham Nation.
