I am a theatre maker and creative producer, obsessed with unexpected connections.
I began my career in San Francisco, where I was artistic director of Inkblot Ensemble, and an associate artist with Cutting Ball Theater and EXIT Theatre. I graduated from the University of California, Irvine with a degree in Drama, after a year at the University of Manchester as an international exchange student.
Since moving to London in 2013, I have created performances at Rich Mix, Camden People’s Theatre, Theatre Delicatessen, LOST Theatre, The Cockpit, Canal Cafe Theatre, Theatre Utopia, and the Southbank Centre’s Women of the World Festival.
I am a co-director of Pinecone Performance Lab with Susie Italiano. Our recent work includes HOT (Helen of Troy), a 90s-inspired musical about beauty, power, and myth, featuring a teenage me and the voice of Helen of Troy. In 2016-2019, we developed Home is Where, a cross-cultural oral history library which has taken many forms in performance from a multi-character dystopian fiction to a one-on-one interactive performance.
In addition to my creative work, I am passionate about connecting and supporting fellow artists. As co-director of the Voila! Europe Theatre Festival, I co-programme and co-produce an annual celebration of multilingual, multicultural, multidisciplinary theatre. With Pinecone, I created and facilitated the London Devised Theatre Intensive (2018-2019), a two-week workshop for theatre makers using Open Space Technology. In 2020, I became the director of Theatre Maker, The Cockpit’s artist development programme.
