I received a BFA in Dramatic Performance from the University of Cincinnati – College Conservatory of Music, studied at the HB Studios in New York, and under Joan Scheckel’s Filmmaking Labs and Jill Soloway in Los Angeles. But most of what I’ve learned has come from trying: doing, failing, and seeing what works.
The assistant to the director of the 2012 Sundance Film Festival official selection Una Hora, a co-writer on Jamie Chura’s The Room So Still Sessions album, and a supporter and collaborator with many artists across the United States and England, I love projects, executing and bringing them to an audience. the Stations is my current one, an electronic experience of Sam Shepard’s one-act Cowboy Mouth. Modeled after The Stations of the Cross, the story is explored in 14 parts.
I am the author of Five Leaves Left (Antar Press), writer and producer of the short film Like the Penguins, and director of the Check in the Dark band documentary Who Are We Now? My one-acts have been a part of festivals and reading series in Los Angeles and Pittsburgh.
With my theater company Odds & Ends Productions, I wrote, produced, and performed in issue-based plays about body image and marriage, all selected and performed at the Cincinnati Fringe Festival.
New York stage credits include: Halfway There, The Scarecrow, Out of Site…Out of Murder, and Grandma’s Getting Married.
