I am a theater performer, creator, and educator based in Philadelphia. I specialize in devising new works and thrive in a the world built by clown logic. I build performance that celebrates failure and universal idiocy. I create spaces that beg for poetry, abstraction, and play. I love to lead and to be led. As a performer, I am a controlled clumsy acrobat with a penchant for flopping to the ground. My favorite place to be is in rehearsal with a group of people that can be seriously stupid and idiotically honest. 

I am proud graduate of North Carolina School of the Arts BFA Drama Program and the Pig Iron School for Devised Performance MFA in partnership with University of the Arts.
