"The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek."- Joseph Campbell
I am a teacher, director, and interdisciplinary artist. I begin each process by finding a universal image that establishes a visual vocabulary for the design team and actors. I adapt to the text, guide the performers, and invite the audience to engage actively. Primarily, I seek productions that allow for mythic theatricality, active interaction with the audience, and inclusive storytelling.
I am at home devising and developing new work, engaging with heightened language, and finding the heart of a story and staging it with innovative, new methods. I see the potential of performance to unite people, whether it is the whole creative team in rehearsals, or through the communion in the theater during performance.
I am the Director of Theatre and Fine Arts Chair at Saint Patrick High School where I teach, direct, and serve as Artistic Director for our summer immersion company where our students work with Non-Equity performers to produce a musical.
