Started a Scene Workshop Project - check it out on my blog.

I am a collaborative theatremaker committed to infusing empathy, nuance, and wonder into my artistic work. I am interested in artist-centered and artist-led creation that exists outside the boundaries of traditional institutional production models. In this space, I enjoy developing new work, experimenting with established texts, and connecting audiences to action-based engagement models. 

 

In many ways I am still an “emerging” artist, though I pride myself on my ability to direct ensembles, work in non-traditional spaces, lead actors through intense dramaturgical discovery, and bridge the gap between seasoned performers and first-time thespians. Being a kinesthetic learner, I am confident in self-producing and creating my own opportunities, while being sensitive to the very real needs of the artist that I work with. 

 

As a director, actor, dramaturg, and teaching artist I have worked with A.D. Players Theatre, ZACH Theatre, Katy Visual and Performing Arts Center, Clear Creek Community Theatre, and the Harry Ransom Center. Currently, I work in the education and community engagement wing of Houston Grand Opera and previously I have worked in administrative roles at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston and Texas Performing Arts. I hold a B.A. in Theatre & Dance from The University of Texas. These experiences only tell a small part of my artistic story, and I encourage you to poke around on this website to learn more about my work and my incredible collaborators.
