I attribute my upbringing in technicolor, sticky-sweet, New Orleans to my attraction towards deep spirit. I'm a multidisciplinary artist in Brooklyn and I've always been drawn to creative work that rewards collaboration. After receiving my BA from Bard College in Theatre and German, I founded and devised work with a theatre company for three years. During my time in the company, work was created as part of Ars Nova’s ANT Fest and BAX’s Upstart Festival. I have a great love for both traditional and contemporary storytelling, evident by my work as a filmmaker as well. I bring to my work a background as a camera assistant, having worked for cinematographers like Zach Sky, Ava Benjamin Shorr, Geoff Taylor, Jon Nelson, and Luca Bigazzi. My own work refuses to be confined; the stories I tell are expansive, therefore so are the forms they take. I experiment with themes of fragmentation, connection, grief, and hope. My short screenplay "Arverne by the Sea" was a 2020 Semifinalist in the Scriptation Showcase and my feature screenplay "Dancing Soldier" was a 2020 Quarterfinalist in The Script Lab’s Free Screenplay Competition. I am an avid learner and just as avid a teacher, thriving in creative environments where communal engagement is key. My creative work is a conversation, not just an answer or a question. It plays a part in how I form community, as I believe creating and consuming are collaborative. This labor of love is reflective of my working-class upbringing as is my commitment to the craft. As a queer woman, I know my art exists outside of assumed binaries just as I do. Across all my work, I am committed to pushing storytelling forward and making the art of doing so more inclusive. more...
