My goal as a director, playwright, producer, and dramaturg is to create theatre that contributes more questions than answers, prompts audiences to examine social and political issues from all sides, fosters discussion within communities, promotes empathy, and creates ripples of thought and action that extend beyond a performance itself.
I have directed and developed new work at The Flea (where I am a Resident Director), Theatre 4the People, Fundamental Theatre Project, The Director’s Gathering Jam, Midtown International Theatre Festival, The Secret Theatre, The 24 Hour Plays: Nationals, TinyRhino, Rising Sun Performance Company, Playwrights at the Grand, and Yes Noise on the High Line. I am also the Associate Artistic Producer at Noor Theatre, a member of the Civilians' R&D Group, Co-Director of the Amoralists' 'Wright Club, and a former Shakespeare Society Ambassador. I have worked, trained, and/or assistant directed at McCarter Theatre (2014-15 Directing/Producing Assistant), Second Stage, Clubbed Thumb, CRY HAVOC, Yale Institute for Music Theatre, and the Théâtre du Châtelet, assisting directors such as Emily Mann, Mark Brokaw, Stafford Arima, Portia Krieger, Adam Immerwahr, and Michael Unger.
I graduated Cum Laude from Yale University with distinction in Theatre Studies and Psychology.
