About

I am a theater maker at large, working independently and in collaboration. I am a founding member of the London-based theater company Mapped Productions and a company member of the Detroit-based theater company A Host of People.

In addition to my freelance work, I write, produce, direct, and design my own productions as well as maintaining a fine art practice.
