I believe it is vital to tell stories that challenge mainstream ideas, hold the door of opportunity open to diverse groups of artists and I hope to dismantle notions of elitism in theatre while pursuing rigor and excellence through fun and artful theatricality. I love language -- its syncopation, musicality and power!

As a child of immigrants I am interested in investigating what it means to be an American.  And because architecture affects human psyche, I'm curious as to how unconventional spaces can illuminate and unpack story. 

I believe that storytelling provides opportunities for communion and conversation for promoting empathy in order to inspire action and change.
