Theatre Artist. Project Manager. Collaborative Creator.

About Me

I'm a Southern grown, Philadelphia-based artist and administrator. I am deeply moved by a perfectly executed spreadsheet, an electric brainstorming session, and any flavor of creative collaboration. 

I've served as an actor, board member, general manager, and artistic staff at a variety of Philadelphia theaters. I've had the pleasure of working in the philanthropic sector funding greater Philadelphia cultural institutions. Most recently, I spent time overseeing COVID testing logistics throughout the United States, participating in weekly calls with laboratories and co-creating client testing collateral and new testing software from scratch. In short, if it's community-based and arts or people focused, I want to be there. I hope our paths cross in collaboration soon.
