I’m a theatre-maker, which in the past has meant playwriting, directing, adapting, producing, and working as a dramaturg. In my work, I experiment with adventurous theatricality to explore politics, feminism, vulnerability, American culture, rage, and ultimately, hope.
I try to unpack in the same breath how societies are capable of such destruction, while individuals are fundamentally good. A friend once described my work as, “People are bad; persons are beautiful.” I’m inspired by plays that transcend traditional conventions of storytelling, and practice a bold relentlessness in style and use of setting.
I have a BFA in Theatre Directing from the University of Michigan (Go Blue), and a MFA in Playwriting from Columbia University. I’ve worked as an assistant director off-Broadway, and as a freelance teaching artist.
“I want to see the whole world,
and I want to write down everything.”
