My freshmen year of college I made it a goal for myself to explore in directing as well as performing. I've never had something influence every other aspect of my work better than directing does. It has made me a better actor, dancer, organizer, leader, and friend. Check out below for my upcoming and previous projects!
KATRINA, A New Musical
This summer, I worked as the assistant director/assistant music director for Walking on Water (WoW)'s SOLD OUT world premier production of KATRINA, A New Musical. I also helped as the assistant props master creating/gathering many props like an oxygen tank, a gourd rattle, almost 50 fake sandbags, and a store-full of items for the ensemble to steal as they desperately search for resources after the hurricane.
Directed by Priscilla Hummel and performed at The Kitchen Theatre as a part of its Kitchen Sink Series.

This spring, I directed the play Strange Snow by Stephen Metcalfe at Ithaca College. The wonderful play is about post-Vietnam troubles, friendship, family, and fishing. Check out the production photos below!

Below the Mason-Dixon Line
IC Play Incubator
Also this spring I had the pleasure of directing for the IC Play Incubator, a new playwrights competition. I directed Below the Mason-Dixon Line, a short play written by Kate Carolyn about love, sex, an online chat room, the civil war, and a very risqué hobby horse. The competition was judged by guest distinguished playwright, Chiori Miyagawa. Check out the production photos below!
