I specialize in choreography, dance, devised theater, and clown. Choreographed for regional theater (Olney Theater), national tours (The National Players), off-broadway (Marvel Rep), for a nobel laureate (Elie Wiesel). Choreographed and directed experimental college shows (B.U., Naropa, Pacifica Grad. Institute), more traditional high school musicals (Ashland H.S., B.U. Academy) operas (Boston Opera Collaborative), and site specific works (Boston, Boulder, NYC, Paris, Berlin). Helmed my own Boston-based dance company for nine years before heading to Colorado for an MFA. Nationally recognized for playwriting (Kennedy Center Fellow 2007). Wrote, directed, choreographed, and performed my one woman character-clown-bouffon show at the Boulder International Fringe Festival (2014) and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival (2015). Beginning to enjoy the life of academia as an adjunct. Back in Beantown and loving it. I make art and I help others make art. Fund me. Love me. Together, let's cocreate and collaborate.
