Rehearsal, 2016 - Maps to Nowhere
Cofounder, writer, and performer with Aesthesis Creative (2016-2019). Aesthesis Creative focused on devising original stories told by our collaborators about complex issues such as noncombat-related PTSD, surviving and thriving post-trauma, and finding joy beyond challenge. Working with scientists and mental health professionals, interweaving neuroscientific research, and conducting academic interviews, we wrote and performed pieces of profound change and personal exploration in Colorado, New York, and Queensland, Australia.
Cofounder, curriculum developer and role originator of the Crossroad Players (2013-2016) - four brilliant theatre creators and friends brought original and award-winning plays to the Boston area. We performed 'Night, Mother (Marsha Norman) and original work such as Always, Rachel (Jessie and Jarod Field).

Applied Theatre Facilitator
Applied theatre, also known as interactive theatre or applied drama, is an umbrella term for theatre-making in non-traditional contexts, specifically political, educational, community-based, and sometimes therapeutic contexts. Most often, a trained facilitator guides the process of an applied theatre performance or practice and is crafted for and by non-professional artists and actors. Applied theatre, at its core, is a tool to facilitate change - or as Augusto Boal, one of the founders of the form states, it is a "rehearsal for revolution."
I have had the honor of facilitating workshops and classes in Switzerland, Israel, Palestine, Ghana, and all over the US. I primarily focus on:
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belong Training
Self-expression and empowerment for Leadership
Anti-bullying and violence prevention
