I am a theater director based in New York City, though I frequently work in the Carolinas in the American South. I am most interested in physical theater, puppetry, and documentary drama, often integrating grassroots community engagement into my creative process. I have worked in both rural South Carolina and in the Ohio prison system in this way. I have trained and worked at Double Edge Theatre, and it is through them that I learned about the Magdalena Project. Currently, I am a Julie Taymor World Theater Fellow traveling throughout Peru, Chile and Argentina to study theater.
