Bio

I am a Chicago (via New Orleans, via New York, via Philadelphia) based teaching artist, director, performer, prop designer, and writer. I earned my BA in Theater with a concentration in Directing from Bard College in 2011. I’ve worked with young people for over a decade, developing project-based leadership programming for middle schoolers; facilitating Expressive Arts Therapy workshops with young men in a juvenile detention center; teaching ACT Prep and College Access courses in high schools; curating K–12 arts programming at a contemporary art museum; and teaching playwriting and performance workshops with grades 5–12 with American Blues Theater and The Neo-Futurists. My own work investigates body politics, womanhood, and gender/sexual identities through poetry and performance.
