Coming up in August 2018, I will begin a 2-year Playwriting MFA program at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. Here I come, Pennsylvania! Hide your pierogi!
For the past three years I have been a Houston-based playwright, director, and producer, founding member of Collective 48, and the literary assistant at the Alley Theatre.
I have helped to coordinate the past three Alley All New Festivals, as well as co-producing several events with Collective 48: a walk-through theatre experience at a house in the historic Heights neighborhood, the Houston branch of the inaugural The Future Is Female Festival in collaboration with Mildred’s Umbrella Theatre, and a workshop production of SPITSHOW which I co-wrote and directed with Sam Mayer.
My plays have been produced around town by companies including: Mildred’s Umbrella Theatre, the Boiling Point Players’ New Day Cabaret, Playhouse 1960’s Short Play Festival, Cone Man Running Productions, and Scriptwriters/Houston. My plays have also been presented by Northlight Theatre in Chicago, and Blunt Objects Theatre in New Orleans. My play Twinings was published in the book 105 Five-Minute Plays for Study and Performance, available from Smith and Kraus.
In the past year I was an Albee Foundation Fellow, in residence for the month of August 2017 at The Barn in Montauk, NY. I was also a resident playwright with the HBMG Foundation’s National Winter Playwright’s Retreat in Creede, Colorado during February 2018.
