I'm an interdisciplinary theatre artist who has worked at theaters around the country as an actor, playwright, dramaturg and director. I'm also a faculty member at the Tom Todoroff Conservatory, where I teach a year-long course on Western Theater History and Dramaturgy. I received my MFA in Dramaturgy from Columbia University School of the Arts. I have a prior MA in Medieval & Renaissance Studies from Columbia University, and a degree in Classical Acting from The London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art (LAMDA). I also studied Meisner Technique for two years with Bill Esper.
Since November, I've been a co-dramaturg and writing contributor on "The Momversations Project," a multi-media endeavor presented by the National Women's Theatre Festival. An all-mom team of core collaborators created a podcast and a devised theatrical piece based on interviews with moms across the country, focused on topics such as reproductive rights, gender and parenting, maternal mortality, and the challenges facing working mothers. We premiered the project in a workshop production this July and are currently working on a second draft of the piece for touring. Read an article about us here!
I'm currently dramaturging and playing the role of Jackie in Martin Murray's Columbia Playwriting Thesis production "Good Things Happen." A working class mother finds a bag of stolen money - more than she could ever hope to earn in her lifetime. But what does the average mom even do with that much cash? And how far will she stretch her moral compass if it means making her family’s wildest dreams come true? The project performs in June 2022 and is directed by Laura Dupper, produced by Columbia University School of the Arts and mentored by Steve Martin.
My short play "The Still Point of the Turning World" was accepted into the Secret Theatre's 2022 One-Act Play Festival. 1942. A librarian trapped during the worst of the Blitz considers the poetry of T. S. Eliot.
