I am a dramaturg and director specializing in new plays and Theatre for Young Audiences. What I do: contextualize the world, empower playwrights, and advocate for inclusivity.  ..


By blending empathy and research skills, I unite artistic collaborators, fictitious characters, and live audiences in cohesive and creative storytelling. It is crucial to me to ensure stories accurately reflect a diversity of ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomics, gender, religion, and ability.


On this page are photos of my work, my husband Edgar, and my cat Scout. All three are equally important in my life. A California native, I currently reside in Washington, D.C.
