For a more personal touch...

Originally born and raised in McDonough, GA I now reside in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn working as a freelance director and fight director with a passion for new plays, musicals, and devised work. I work over long periods of time with playwrights or companies, beginning in a very dramaturgical style, trying to help playwrights find their voice and confidence in a new idea. I tend to be attracted and excited by work that is highly theatrical while while grappling with deeply personal conflict that puts less represented voices in the forefront of American Theatre. My directing approach comes from a desire to empower my collaborators and bring out the genius within each new group dynamic. When I'm not directing new plays you can find me taking care of my plants, drinking lots of coffee, and listening to records at home.
