Theatre Director



I am a freelance theatre director focused on creating work that champions unique voices and stories. 

Whether the play is a comedic romp or an examination of the effects of war, all plays are about us as a people in some way; the things that drive us, challenge us, make us different, or our own brand of "oddball". Whatever the content or style of the piece involves, I strive to keep an awareness of the human heart and what leads us to love, loss, and triumph at the center of my work.


Professionally, I have worked off-Broadway and regionally at institutions such as McCarter Theatre Center, Atlantic Acting School, Dramatists Guild Foundation, Keen Company, The Hangar Theatre, Mile Square Theatre, and HERE Arts Center. I often collaborate with Tony award winner, Alice Ripley on her solo shows/concerts at venues such as Feinstein's/54 Below, The Green Room 42, and The Bijou Theatre. 

Alumna of the Drama League Directing Fellowship. Artistic Associate at TheaterWorksUSA.
