I grew up in a small, magical valley in rural Colorado where I developed a love for all things creative. Pursuing a career in the performing arts led me to Colorado Mesa University where I earned a BA in Acting and Directing (2007). After my undergraduate education I headed to the beautiful Pacific Northwest where I began to hone my skills as a director and choreographer in Seattle, WA. In 2013 I moved to New York to earn my MFA in Theatre at Sarah Lawrence College, which I completed in 2015.
Currently I’m based in New York City. My work has been featured at the Northwest New Work Festival, the Seattle International Dance Festival, Pony World Theatre, SarahLawrence College, and Dixon Place.
I am a Theatre and Dance professional who is passionate about collaboration and the creation of original performance. As a director and performer I am drawn to work where I can apply my diverse experience in dance, music, puppetry and playwriting into creating genre-defying, interdisciplinary performances.
My process often begins with a question or line of inquiry; I use theatre to share my curiosity with audiences and rather than present them with answers I invite them to indulge in uncertainty with me.
As a dancer my work is always deeply rooted in the physical; exploring the potential of the human body as object, architecture, image and force of nature. As a musician rhythm finds its way into my own writing and my approach to text. As a comedian my work seeks to engage humor through juxtaposition, playfulness, and irreverence.
