I am the artistic director of Persistent Theatre Productions and I work as a freelance director, playwright, teaching artist, and dialect coach. I've worked with Theatre Unbound, Northern Starz Children's Theatre, Gadfly Theatre Productions, Workhaus Collective, Pillsbury House Theatre, Theatre Pro Rata and The Phoenix Theater, Arst Nest. My favorite plays to direct are ones that have a direct impact on the community, that help to create change.
I seek to create theatre that gives a voice to the unheard, theatre that audiences not only can connect to but walk away from changed. I am drawn to poetic, classical, and expressionistic plays, that stray slightly away from realism but still capture the human spirit. I strive to direct work that empowers the powerless and represents them well.
