Born to a family of artists rural in Ohio she grew up building forts and painting pictures.
After Ohio, she devoted her studies to the liberal arts with a focus in painting and design
for theatre. Spending time in Strasbourg, France she actively absorbed the greater art
world. At Yale she participated in a fellowship program, collaborating with Parapanda
Theatre Lab in Tanzania. Recent credits include, Chicago: The Carnegie Visual and
Performing Arts Center, The Princess Plays 1&2: a site-specific work, American Night
the Ballad of Juan José
: Yale Repertory Theatre. To speak in the first person: The
work I dream to do, and the work I am trying to create, and the work I love, is work that
asks me to take a risk. A painful process of trying to know myself better, and attempt to
understand my own limits and then ask myself to push beyond them.
