Couldn't be more thrilled to dive into Jordan Elizabeth Henry's play Resurrection, this time as an actor! I'm so excited to be stepping into the role of Shae with Walking Shadow Readers Theatre this month.
Thrilled to be featured once again at The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute! Had a ton of fun chatting with my friend (and partner in crime) Amy Benson about how our training helped us in our respective fields as a playwright and casting director. Check out the link to the article here!
This former Northern Virginia girl is very excited to get to work with the Kennedy Center on sharpening her playwriting skills! Happy to be a part of this two week intensive even though it sounds like a whole big pile of work...

I am so thrilled that my play From the Perspective of a Canoe was chosen to be a semifinalist in the 2021 Bay Area Playwrights Festival! I have been chasing a placement in a festival for so long, I'm so happy I finally broke through!
Those on the New Play Exchange can find the script there if you are curious!
Happy to announce that Employee of the Month is an official selection for the 2021 Poor Life Choices Comedy Film Festival! A very appropriately named festival for this movie to be in.

I am so happy to announce that a new draft of my dark comedy Dorm #5 will be getting a reading at the end of this month with my very own Walking Shadow Readers Theatre! Check it out live on Friday, February 26th on our YouTube Channel!

I am happy to say that the readings for Moving Arts Theatre's MADLab Play Development Program are finally here! It's been a weird ride -- the pandemic hit in the middle of our second draft rewrites and readings, and we all had to adapt to doing things online. But we got through it! Happy to be in such good company! You can reserve (free!) tickets here.
