I'm a St. Louis-Born, Brooklyn-based theater-maker. I studied acting at NYU's Experimental Theater Wing and playwriting with Edward Albee. My plays have been developed at venues such as Ars Nova, The Brick, Classic Stage Company, Dixon Place, HERE Arts Center, The Lark, The NY Int'l Fringe Festival, NYMF, PS122, and Second Stage.
In 2012, I co-founded The Representatives for which I wrote 15 new works, first presented in apartments, churchs & hair salons. The subjects of my plays range widely: the financial crisis & Occupy Wall Street; Chelsea Manning & WikiLeaks; the Virginia Tech massacre; online dating; nihilism in 19th century Russia; the persecution of gays in Uganda; urban homelessness; the Fathers’ Rights movement; ISIS; the death of Whitney Houston; the forgotten victims of Ted Bundy; the BlackLivesMatter movement; and the plight of transgender youth. The New York Times called the 2015 racially and ability-diverse production of VERITAS “agonizingly vivid”, and The Guardian said of PRIVATE MANNING GOES TO WASHINGTON, “This intelligent, thoughtful play couldn’t be more urgent.”
For the 2019-20 season, I'll be based in Mexico City, working on the Shamanic Series, a handful of short play commissions in which people entrust me with subjects meaningful to them: life-changing events, personal heroes, extraordinary achievements. These plays are love songs, prayers, farewell letters, concerns that feel too big, and things you want to lay to rest. If this resonates with you, get in touch. It would be an honor to work with you.
