Right now this is mostly a place to put my ITP assignments.
I am a multidisciplinary theater artist, cultural activist, and dork. I entered the NYU Tisch School of the Arts in the fall of 2017 to study in the Interactive Telecommunications Program (ITP) part-time while I continue my day job at the NYU Tisch Department of Photography and Imaging.
I straddle the worlds of theater, performance, and activism––worlds that don’t often talk to each other but definitely intersect… I think. I firmly believe in live art and non-violent direct action as sites of world-making, radical empathy, and resistance.
As a performer, I have presented solo physical theater work and cabaret and I have appeared as an actor, physical theater artist, and puppeteer in independent theater productions in New York, Detroit, and Moscow, Russia.
As an activist, I worked with the culture-jamming collective The Yes Men as an idea producer, performer, and media strategist. With their non-profit the Yes Lab, I facilitated workshops on satire, narrative-building, and artistic activism. I continue to participate in grassroots activist spaces in NYC with a particular interest in anti-racism, anti-gentrification, and environmental justice.
I am an elder millennial. I completed my B.A. in Theater from Oberlin College (2007) and I am an alumna of the Hemispheric Institute’s program for emerging artists, EmergeNYC (2011).
