Fundamentally committed to the idea that theatre making should be a collaborative process, I believe the stage manager's role is to create an environment where everyone is able to do their best work. I bring with me a diverse set of interdisciplinary experiences ranging from performer to technician to production manager to designer that constantly informs my work as a stage manager.
I am a graduate of Georgetown University in Washington, DC, where I studied history and theatre and performance studies. My research focused on the history of institutions and the way people organize themselves to produce culture. While at Georgetown, I served as the Executive Producer of the Mask and Bauble Dramatic Society, the oldest continually-operating student theatre company in the country. I am a proud alumnus of the Professional Training Company at Actors Theatre of Louisville.
In addition to stage management, I work as a theatrical lighting designer and write about history and performance for Six by Eight Press.
