I am a theatre artist, dramaturg, editor, graphic designer, eternal student, and writer. Currently the Director of Audience Engagement at WSC Avant Bard, in Arlington Virginia, I also work in the Public Programs office at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC. I just completed a year as the Literary Associate at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, and I was also the recent dramaturgy apprentice at the Olney Theatre Center. With a strong background and interest in production dramaturgy and research, I am also deeply passionate about new play development and the unique power it wields to challenge and shape American audiences. I aim to continue my dramaturgical work in the DC area with the eventual goal of returning to academia. A proud member of LMDA, I love connecting with fellow dramaturgs, literary managers, theatre artists, and writers, so please feel free to send me a message or follow me on Twitter or Facebook.
I graduated summa cum laude with a bachelor of arts in English and drama in May of 2013 from Washington College. There, I served as Editor-in-Chief of The Elm, our student newspaper. I also interned for a variety of print publications, including The Kent County News, The Herald-Mail, The Washington College Magazine, and BeWell World. My theatre background culminated in my senior dramaturgy thesis; my work on “The Tragedy of King Lear” was featured on the 2013 Association for Theatre in Higher Education Dramaturgy Debut Panel.
