"You Have Made a Story on My Skin,"
September 16-October 1

I create original devised performance and experimental theatre that smashes convention and inspires connection. It often walks the fine line between the sacred and the profane. I also help others bring their new works to fruition in intelligent, interesting ways.

I am also a Producing Playwright with The Welders, an Artistic Associate with banished? productions and a 2016 Recipient of a DCCAH's Artist Fellowship and winner of the 2016 Larry Neal Writers Award for Dramatic Writing.
