Bio

After receiving an AB in Theatre, Speech, and Dance from Brown University, I spent eight years as a director and assistant at 2nd Story Theatre in Rhode Island and Commonwealth Shakespeare Company in Boston. In DC, I've directed for the Inkwell, the Welders, Theatre Lab, Pinky Swear Productions, the Source Festival, the Kennedy Center, Adventure Theatre MTC, Young Playwrights' Theatre, and Flying V.
