A professional dramaturg, director, and arts administrator, I have extensive experience in organizations of all sizes. From working front of house in a major national theatre, providing production dramaturgy at regional theatres, to directing on the most intimate stages, I have a breadth of experience uniquely qualifying me for different projects. 

I am dedicated to providing an invigorating learning environment for my students and to do so, consistently engage in rigorous scholarship, presenting my work at conferences throughout the country. For a comprehensive overview of my scholarship and activities, please click the link to the left.
