I was invited by Center Theatre Group to speak with college educators about how we can better prepare the next generation of theatre-makers to cultivate a living in the arts.
I am elated to be a part of the 20 artists taking part in La Maida's Mirroring Resilience Artist Intensive, a project hatched from the beautiful mind of Edgar Fabian Frias. We are going to have a public showing of work September 22.
I am profoundly honored to have performed in this year's Resurrection of Care with The Golden Dome. Thank you Eliza Swann and Patrick Mansfield for organizing this beautiful event.
I am elated to have directed the workshop of Ray Yamanouchi's Tha Chink-Mart at Playpenn in Philadelphia. Ray and my work together started over a year ago at The Blank on an earlier draft of the script. The folks at Playpenn, including our fabulous actors and genius dramaturg, Gina Pisasale, are among the best. Big thanks to Paul Meshejian and Michele Volansky for their fiercely kind and generous support.
It is a weird and beautiful life.
I am fresh from a workshop at The Celebration Barn with my teacher Aitor Basauri.
I have lived with this show for over two years and am so pleased to say that it's going GREAT! You can catch me onstage as the feisty orphan Wick at The Garry Marshall Theatre.
“The show is a pretty spectacular combination of stagecraft and over-the-top theatrics that create an impressive experience. It's a mood piece with a message and it is right in the Rogues' wheelhouse. The wooden boy is an astonishingly lifelike creation…slick and dirty storytelling gives way to a heartfelt illustration of the redemptive power of love.” -Broadway World
“Delightfully dark in all the best ways…equal parts mind-blowing and terrifying.Wood Boy Dog Fish really blew me away. I truly loved it, and would definitely recommend it to people looking for a fun, new twist on Pinocchio." - Horror Buzz
"The Wood Boy puppet...is a thing of absolute beauty as it not only looks cool, but manages to move in impressive ways...This is a fantastic reinterpretation of Mr. Collodi's novel that manages to feel unique. The whole thing has a nice contemporary feel thanks to the wonderfully dark production values."

I wrote this play! Hannah Chodos beautifully directed it! Thank you to Caitlin Hart and The Vagrancy for having me in residency over the past 9 months.
