DIRECTING

 
Professional ​
info​​

I graduated in 2006 with a MFA in Directing from The Catholic University of America. My thesis project was directing Marisol by Jose Rivera. During my studies, I traveled to the 55th Annual Dubrovnik Theatre Festival in my role as Assistant Director for my advisor's production of Uncle Maroje. At the festival, I directed our presentation in the opening ceremonies of the festival and discovered amazing gelato. The first play I ever directed was Blue Window by Craig Lucas as my senior thesis in undergrad at Connecticut College if you don't count my third grade's holiday pageant which I also wrote and starred as the Virgin Mary.
