I am a carpenter by day, a production manager by night, a writer by passion, and a rabble-rouser by everything else. I've been writing short stories and essays for as long as memory provides, with the honor of being published in That’s Revolting! Queer Strategies for Resisting Assimilation in 2004. Currently I am working on a mytho-biography spanning multiple generations of a Jewish family, which relates historical trauma to cycles of violence, both intimate and global. I was awarded a State Arts Board Artist's Initiative Grant in 2014 to further this project.
I have had the pleasure of working with Ananya Dance Theatre as Production Manager for the company, since January 2013. Working behind-the-scenes in the performing arts has been an important part of my creative life, ever since organizing rock shows-as-fundraisers in high school. Now I get to combine my organizational and creative efforts, working with a dance company that is rooted in the values of social, racial and environmental justice -- the same values that propel me in my personal endeavers.
