I am a director, actor, and educator who believes that storytelling is a service; and that artists who are devoted to: telling stories that challenge mainstream ideas, holding the door of opportunity open to diverse groups of artists; dismantling notions of elitism in theatre while pursuing rigor and excellence through fun, artful theatricality (and even pop-culture ideas); are necessary to the development of its people.
I love language--its syncopation, musicality, and power! And I believe in the power of PLAY.
As a child of immigrants I am particularly interested in investigating the question of what it means to be an American and I love exploring how a non-traditional space can illuminate and unpack story in the ways architecture affects human psyche. I believe that performance spaces are opportunities for conversation that can inspire action and change. We can make the world a better place or at least live our lives trying.
