I received my BA in Theatre from the University of Southern California. While there I served as Artistic Director of the Writing Our Dream Organization, as well as working as a director for the Brand New Theatre which developed and produced all new student work. I was a directing intern at the Guthrie on the production of Caroline or Change during the Tony Kushner Celebration. I also acted with several smaller companies while living in Minneapolis. Next, I attended the National Theatre Institute at the O’Neill Theatre Center [Summer 2009] as a director for the Theatremaker program. Afterward, I returned to Los Angeles and worked with several LA Theatre companies including Playwright’s Arena, LA Theatre Center, Antaeus Theatre, The Virginia Avenue Project, The Odyssey Theatre Ensemble, etc. My last show in LA was as the Assistant Director to James Roday for the Red Dog Squadron’s [RDS] production of GREEDY. I continue to work with RDS virtually as their social media manager. I also served as the Production Coordinator for the Directors Lab West . Since returning to Seattle in early 2011 I have worked primarily with the Bellevue Youth Theatre as a Resident Director & Teacher. I have had the privilege of working with several incredible companies in and around Seattle including, MAP Theatre, theater schmeater, ACT, Balagan, 14/48 – The World’s Quickest Theatre Festival, theatre anonymous, Annex Theatre, SANCA [training], Seattle Playwright’s Collective, West of Lenin, Seattle Public Theater, LIVE GIRLS! & theater simple. AND! I am West of Lenin’s Communications Director & lead my own theatre company PLAYING IN PROGRESS. I’ve also been very lucky to work with some wonderful Seattle filmmakers since being here & can’t wait for more.
I love red wine, karaoke, & site specific theater. Let’s Play.
