About Me

I am a theatre artist with a focus on cultural memory and community-engaged performance. As the Director of the University of Michigan’s Educational Theatre Company (UMetc), I produce, direct, and program the company’s academic and school year performances. I am the production manager for A Host of People, a Detroit-based ensemble theater company creating original work that celebrates complexity, imagination, and the synthesis of seemingly disparate elements – at once epic and intimate, political and personal, poetic and approachable. I am also the Artistic Director of BoxFest Detroit, an annual theatre festival to support the work of female-identifying directors. I have worked regionally with the Wharton Center for Performing Arts, University of Michigan’s InterArts ProgramHeritage WorksAnn Arbor Dance WorksA Host of PeopleTipping Point Theatre, Matrix Theatre CompanyPuzzle Piece Theatre, and the Michigan Equity Theatre Alliance; and internationally with the London-based production company, Turtle Key Arts. I have a Master of Arts from King’s College, London in Theatre & Performance Studies and a Bachelor of Arts from Alma College in Theatre and English.

I am an Actor’s Equity Association Membership Candidate, a member of Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas, an Alumni Epsilon member of the International English Honorary Sigma Tau Delta, a member of Pedagogy and Theatre of the Oppressed, and a member at large for the Theatre and Social Change focus group of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education.
