I am a director, actor, and educator who believes that storytelling is a service.
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, artful theatricality (and even pop-culture ideas). 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 love exploring how a non-traditional space can illuminate and unpack story. I believe that performance spaces are opportunities for conversation and communion to promote empathy and can inspire action and change.
