What I Do
Above all, I’m a storyteller, but I put that skill to use in a variety of ways. Here’s a little more information on each of them:
As a director, I’m most interested in projects that allow me to put my strong dramaturgy skills to use, such as the development of new plays and musicals and the reimagining of classics. Favorite directing credits include Here We Dance, an immersive theatrical fairytale party, Other Girls, a feminist cabaret, a lab of Songs for Slutty Girls by Kailey Marshall, and a reading of Reparation, a new play by South African playwright Ameera Conrad.
Writing for the Stage
As a theater writer, I write both plays and musicals (book and lyrics). I've had several workshops of my play The Cardioluthier and my musical Broken City, and I had the distinct honor of writing a speech for Billy Porter to perform in the Broadway for Biden event In Our America: A Concert for the Soul of the Nation.
As a fiction writer, I’ve completed manuscripts for two novels. Both are mysteries, though I plan to branch out to other genres in the future. I’m represented by Rosie Jonker of the Ann Rittenberg Literary Agency, who is currently submitting one of them to publishers.
Film and Television Writing
After spending the past few years serving as Director’s Assistant on the MGM feature film Respect (available to stream via Prime Video and Apple TV) and dramaturgical consultant for director Liesl Tommy and actor Jennifer Mudge’s new production company Crocodile Eyes, I’m currently seeking representation as a writer for film and television.
Ghost Ship Murder Mysteries
In 2016, I co-founded murder mystery party company Ghost Ship Murder Mysteries with fellow director-playwright Lindsay Carpenter. Our interactive experiences, which feature intricate storylines in five unique themes, have been written up in several major national publications and played internationally.
