ME

I make performances that distill complex philosophical ideas into salient emotional experiences. Typically my work is devised with the ensemble, performed in unusual venues, and formatted with immersive and interactive elements. I am drawn toward expressionistic world-building, dialectic modes of thinking, oscillation between intimacy and spectacle, and moments of intense chaos. I believe that art should be financially and substantively accessible.

I am the founder and artistic director of Ceaseless Fun, an LA-based immersive performance company. Also, I’m on the founding board of directors for the League of Experiential and Immersive Artists and lead a monthly physical theater/ensemble devising jam: Soft Focus. I am available as a director, associate director, dramaturg, or immersive consultant for performances, events, VR, and everything in between.

Outside of theater, I enjoy vegan baking, playing bass, feeling nostalgic for Chicago, bouldering, and being the last person left at your party.
