here is what i'm

 passionate

about

Storytelling. Laughter. The multi-ethnic experience. Music. Connection. Resilience. History. Feminism. Language. Healing. 

here is what i

write

History. Comedy. Restoration. I love to write about life at pivotal intersections. The anthropologist in me is drawn to exploring communication and the use of multiple languages in American theatre, including the application and/or omission of translation for American audiences. The survivor and activist in me is interested in the excavation of trauma, healing, and restoration through storytelling.

here's how i like to

direct

My directing style can be described as a positive, unambiguous collective creation process. I don't believe that actors' desires and imagination should be ignored in the creative process, neither should they be without guidance; in the rehearsal room, we lay the groundwork first, establish character relationships second, and then create room for play and new discoveries within those establishments.

i get sh*t

done

Here's how.

I'm a writer, actress, director, non-profit producer of theatre,  a trained paralegal, and a lover of learning. I am not a one-trick pony, but a thriving, modern haberdashery-of-a-woman.  

 

I work in Human Resources and Global Mobility, and I teach foreign nationals about the American healthcare system and U.S. immigration as part of my day job.

 

I am a certified Green Dot Training Facilitator and a Volunteer Victim Advocate for survivors as part of the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program (SAPR) with the Department of Defense.

 

I have been trained in de-escalation tactics for emergency planning and suicide prevention, and I have partnered with nonprofits globally and locally in my theatre career to bring awareness to the global refugee crisis, domestic violence prevention, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

 

I am passionate about empowering women & TGNC artists in theatrical development. I started the #HireTheArtist campaign. 

I have two cats. I love to cook. I play the ukulele.
