I direct theatre because

I like solving puzzles.

I want to do some work when I walk into the theater. I should have to piece together the story and make sense of a foreign world on stage, not sit back and watch something I already understand. I encourage my audiences to come to their own conclusions, to fill in the blanks. I want them to leave the theater wrestling with questions, but determined to find solutions.

I'm a 2014 Drama League Directing Fellow and the former co-founder and Producing Artistic Director of Flashpoint Theatre Company in Philadelphia. I completed my MFA in Directing at The Theatre School at DePaul University. I currently run my own self-producing entity - The Antidote - with artistic collaborators from Chicago and Philadelphia.

I teach at Temple University and Rowan University, and I have taught at Arcadia, Drexel, and the National High School Institute at Northwestern University ("Cherubs").
