As a new play dramaturg and director, I prioritize supporting the playwright’s voice, helping the team assess all the interpretive possibilities at their disposal, and asking probing questions that bring the play into conversation with the larger context around it.
Rorschach Theatre Company
I’ve twice served as a dramaturg for Rorschach Theatre Company’s development program, starting with Julia Marks’s Waiting for Iggy Pop (2021) and continuing with Julia Izumi’s Sometimes the Rain, Sometimes the Sea (2022).
WildWind Performance Lab
In 2018, I returned to the WildWind Performance Lab at Texas Tech University and served as dramaturg for two student-written plays slated for production the following season.
While at Texas Tech, I was the first Dramaturg for the annual Raider Red’s One-Act Play Spectacular; I later served two terms as Producer. I created new development opportunities and benchmarks, expanded audience engagement, and coordinated visiting respondents like Megan Monaghan Rivas and J. Ranelli.
Training and Reading
As a Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival National Finalist in Dramaturgy, I learned from Mark Bly, Drew Lichtenberg, and Heather Helinsky, among others. I have also served as a reader for the Bay Area Playwrights’ Festival, KCACTF, and the University of Maryland’s Fearless New Play Festival.
