Storytelling is one of the most powerful tools that we have as human beings. It is the common core of all cultures, all people, all of history, and in these times it is becoming more important by the day. Shaping these stories is all I've wanted to do since I was young. It seems to be the only way to address those life questions that every human is trying to explore. Why are we here? How do we interact with each other and this crazy world? How do we continue living when the universe deals us all the wrong cards?
Within this world of ever-growing media and technology, the theatre is an incredibly unique chance to give audiences something that movies and television can not: the complete human experience. It is my goal as a director to help audiences to question their world, to experience a slice of life that they have never before considered. I am constantly looking for plays that depict real, raw life. I have learned that the director can make or break a production, but more importantly can make or break the experience as a whole. I aim to treat both the story and those helping to tell it with trust and respect.
My current journey has brought me to Chicago, IL. I am the artistic director and a founding member of Wayward Sisters Theatre Ensemble, which strives to serve the vast array of women in this world through producing new works. My next goal is to venture into the world of film, which is sure to give me more tools to create the art that matters.
