I am a director, choreographer, and writer currently living and working in New York City. My "hilarious, provacative" performance work has been presented at 3-Legged Dog, La MaMa Etc, Theater Row, Prelude/CUNY Graduate Center, The Brooklyn Museum, The Brick, FRINGENYC, and non-theater spaces like outside of the 68th Street subway stop, NYCFashion Week, and 571 Projects. My work is interdisciplinary, "idea-driven," and good, weird fun. I choreographed Vaclav Havel's final play, a story about finding pork in Communist Czechslovakia, and once I turned Theodore Roosevelt into a bull moose as he gave his famous 1912 speech after having just been shot.

I have been thinking about where language and gesture meet and depart for a long time. The longer I practice, the more I appreciate the geography (time+place) of this dance between ideas, words, and bodies. For me, the act of creating is a sacred and wacky exploration of our interior worlds, which has a very big impact on our exterior worlds. It is the dialogue of the micro with the meta.
