Hey there! I’m an applied theatre practitioner and community-based artist who believes in strong coffee and stronger communities. My practice centers on facilitating agentive, asset-based artistic processes with and for communities, and my research focuses on grassroots practices in institutional settings. I just moved to Charlottesville to begin working as the Artistic Director & Program Manager of UVA Acts, an educational theatre program promoting equitable, vibrant spaces for working and learning at the University of Virginia.

Theatre and performance for social change, and arts integration in education and public health settings.
