I have a deep love of literature and history that seeps into everything I do as an artist. After graduating from Dartmouth as a double major in Philosophy and Theater, I moved to New York to pursue work that inspires me.
As an actor, I am drawn to truthful and complex characters, brought to life by inspiring text. It is no surprise, then, that I love Classical theater, especially Shakespeare.
As a writer, I love to take inspiration from historical fiction and classical plays. My passion lies in adaptation, in using old stories to say something new. Currently I have two projects in the works: She-Wolf, an adaptation of Shakespeare's Wars of the Roses tetralogy focusing on Queen Margaret, and Like Other Girls, a sensible roast of musical theater's finest historical women.
As a dramaturg, I specialize in plays that have a philosophical bent to them, and adaptations of Shakespeare plays. Currently, I am serving as the dramaturg for a new play about Friedrich Nietzsche, on whom I wrote my Honors Thesis at Dartmouth.
