By heart, I am a storyteller and multimedia artist. By profession, I am an award-winning dramaturg, director, and writer specializing in new plays and creative content for children.


I blend empathy and research skills to unite artistic collaborators, fictitious characters, and audiences in cohesive and imaginative storytelling. I endeavor to ensure stories accurately reflect a diversity of ethnicity, sexuality, socioeconomics, gender, religion, and ability.


On this page are select photos of my work, my husband, my son, and my cat. All are equally important in my life. 

A California native, I currently reside in Virginia.
