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.
After a wonderful experience collaborating on "The Momversations Project" this summer, I've joined the staff of the National Women's Theatre Festival as Artistic Producer under Executive Director Johannah Maynard Edwards. Now in our 8th year, NWTF's annual summer conference (the nation’s largest symposium on gender in theatre) and bi-yearly Fringe Festival are focused on building the pipeline of underrepresented-gender theater artists. I'm thrilled to be a part of this amazing organization with such a vital mission.
I'm excited to announce I was accepted into the BMI Lehman-Engel Musical Theatre Workshop in the Bookwriting Basics class for Librettists. I'll be working on an original musical and collaborating with the artists from the Lyricist and Composer tracks.
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!
