I believe in shining a light upon stories that don’t often get told.  I believe there is power in storytelling, perhaps because of its long history within the human spectrum, or because ever since our birth it’s how we try to make sense of all the myriad of things that surround us in the world.  As a theatre maker I seek to combine my love of words, music & movement to tell a story where each one can take the reins of the storytelling, fully and harmoniously with one another, changing the way may see things, and crossing thresholds of understanding.

In New York, and Washington, DC I continue to conceive, direct, or perform in a developing series called Notes From the Underground, a multidisciplinary exploration of loving and longing in times of war and peace.  Recently I produced my soldiers trilogy presenting a soldier’s tale, what it is to train, fight, and return.

Taking the time to experience someone else’s story can change how we view the world and feel about a stranger we’ve never met, truly connecting and grounding us all.  In the respect that I am a eternal student, always curious for more adventure, I am currently enrolled in an Ear Training course at Juilliard, and I’m under scholarship at the West Side Dance Project.  I’m a graduate of American University’s School of International Service, with a concentration on Peace & Conflict Resolution.
