Areas of Expertise:

straight plays, musicals, solo performance, devised work, dance, cross-disciplinary collaboration, literary management, research, building relationships with artists and institutions, community engagement

I appreciate the opportunity to bring my sense of craft, form, and narrative to all sorts of collaborations, and to finding the ways all three are relevant in a variety of different art forms. I also believe that my work as a dramaturg and champion of new work extends to bringing the work into conversation with audiences--i.e., finding artistic partners to produce the work, providing relevant contextualization for the audience, creating opportunities for interaction with and among viewers, participants, and other artists.
