about me

I’m a playwright and screenwriter, currently under commission from Stagefemmes at Kenyon College. In the spring of 2019, I studied Advanced Playwriting at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s National Theater Institute, and I stayed on for the summer as a Literary Intern for the O’Neill’s many festivals.

Several of my short and one-act plays have been produced in festivals in New York, and I was a playwright member of the ensemble that produces the New Short Play Festival for several seasons. My short screenplay Fireworks for a Funeral received a reading as a competition finalist at the D.C. Shorts Film Festival (one of USA Today’s 10 Best Film Festivals).

Besides the O’Neill, I’ve also studied at Upright Citizens Brigade and Second City. I attended George Washington University in D.C., where I was an art history major and captain of the equestrian team. (I like horses.)
