ABOUT ME

A life in the arts is a commitment...to working other jobs that pay for your art habit.

I grew up in Seattle in the 80's and 90's. My early identity was forged by high school drama class, riot grrl, watching Xena: Warrior Princess, and riding my bike. I got started in improv by selling concessions at the Market Theater in Post Alley and seeing all the shows for free before I (eventually) joined the company and shoehorned my way onto the stage.

I moved to New York City in 1996 to attend NYU. Through zines and queer groups and hand-written letters I found my community and started making comedy and theater on the Lower East Side and in Brooklyn.Performance spaces weren't hard to book, and I produced comedy and cabaret with my friends at places like Surf Reality, The Slipper Room, The Greene Room, Meow Mix, Bluestockings Bookstore, and The Delancey. Eventually I found another home at Galapagos Art Space where I produced "Lip Service: Live Singing, Dancing and Comedy."

Fast forward about 15 years- I moved to the Hudson Valley and founded the Hudson Valley Performing Arts Laboratory- essentially just making more theater with more friends. I'm back in Brooklyn (and sometimes Canada) now and you can find me teaching, directing, or (when the money runs out) designing people's living spaces.
