One of my greatest joys is creating and adapting stories in any form. From producing short films and writing scripts, to directing full length plays and devising pieces with an ensemble, I find artistic homes in story telling where ever I can. I have a passion for structure and am happiest in the depths of curious creative moments. Included in this is my dedication to RPG's in my free time, creating worlds and stories with my friends over our homemade cacio y pepe is just as important to me to the ones I choose to share with the world.

Producing is my newest role as a creator. I felt moved to create work for myself and peers during the pandemic. The adventure of taking on a new role and being a beginner through such a dark time.

devising

Creating work with an ensemble has been one of my greatest joys as a creator. When I was learning in Moscow, they had us create a piece every day as a group to 'surprise' our teachers with the following morning. This showed me the power and creativity that can come out of collective story telling, and the magic of the element of surprise

Directing stimulates my love for working with actors and playwrights. I view myself as a hiking tour guide, letting everyone have their experience of the journey but allowing us to go on a clear path from the beginning to the end of it.
