Theatre

I've contributed dramaturgy to productions ranging from Young Playwrights Festivals to world premiere plays by Pulitzer Prize-winners like Annie Baker (JOHN) and Quiara Alegría Hudes (Daphne's Dive) and was recently recognized for my work in Poets' Theatre by the Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas. A past Signature Theatre Company Literary Fellow and script-reader for the New York Theatre Workshop, my work has also appeared at Pittsburgh's City Theatre CompanyBricolage Production Company, and the Pittsburgh Irish & Classical Theatre, among others.
