My directing career began at age eleven when I directed (and starred in) a fan film of The Hunger Games featuring my neighbors. Since then, I have directed and assistant directed regionally in North Carolina and virtually with The Vagrancy, a company based in Grand Rapids, Michigan and L.A., California. 

With my newfound experience with poetic analysis in the context of classical voice and art song, I am hoping to direct more plays with poetic texts. I am also particularly drawn to political theatre and texts that explore feminism from a philosophical lens. 

In addition to creating my own vision for productions, I also love bringing other directors' visions to life through assistant directing. I possess a keen ability to predict and translate a director's ideas into design presentations and actor coaching. I offer virtual/in-person director prep assistance, where I use conversations with a director to create vision boards, French scene breakdowns, dramaturgy research lists, character descriptions, audition cuts, and more (contact for work samples).
