I am a theatre artist and producer passionate about collaborative processes of playmaking and exploring the inner-workings of the twenty-first century. I use theatre to pose questions that ignite dialogue, to interrogate dominant narratives, and to pave the way to a more equitable future for all.


I graduated summa cum laude from Butler University, with Highest Honors in Theatre and a minor in Anthropology. I am the Marketing Manager at HERE and Artistic Producer of The Arctic Cycle. I write for the online series Artists and Climate Change, and am a founding member of the Back to Work Collective and CLIMATE LENS.
