My practice as a theatre director is rooted in the belief that theatre is a mechanism for joy and magic.
As a child, my early encounters with theatre imparted a lasting joyful awe, which continues to guide my approach to directing. I am drawn to the ephemeral nature of theatre and the unique connection between performers and audiences. I create work full of exciting sensory experiences that evoke a visceral childlike sense of wonder. Above all, I approach my work as a director with a human-first philosophy and the belief that a great production begins with a healthy rehearsal room.
I aim to make my work accessible to all audiences. I am particularly interested in using my background with American Sign Language to collaborate with Deaf artists in making art that bridges communication barriers. I seek out opportunities to learn more about accessible practices and implement them in my work.
