Dynamic performing arts professional with over 30 years industry experience, 25 served in senior organizational leadership as producer and Artistic Director. A gregarious coach, encouraging team-leader and diplomatic consensus builder with a proven track record of inclusive programming and community engagement, strong sales, capacity attendance and fiscal responsibility. An avowed arts lover devoted to the crafts of producing, acting and directing; with entrepreneurial origins as a grassroots company organizer equally at home in immersive, site-specific environments, traditional proscenium stages, or black-tie fundraising events. A steadfast, loyal and playful dream deviser and opportunity-maker.


I've always upheld the belief that the Theater should be a space that is open and available to all, and that our strength and the sacredness of our call relies upon accessibility, humble service and the egalitarian welcoming of all disparate voices, thoughts and beings into the dialogue of our shared human experience. My work in this capacity is ever-evolving, and has been supported by a myriad of diverse partnerships and collaborations spanning the three decades of my practice in the performing arts.
