PENGUIN PRODUCTIONS

Associate Artistic Producer

I have recently joined the team over at Penguin Productions, where I am working as their Associate Artistic Producer. In this role I manage the Penguin Productions website, as well as making marketing materials, handling social media communications, and working with Seattle youth through Penguin's Youth Productions. This fall, I will be directing a high school production of Romeo and Juliet through Penguin.

PROOF

Director

Proof, by David Auburn was produced at the University of Redlands in the Spring of 2020. Due to the outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States, my directorial debut was put on two weeks before it was intended to be seen. Tech for this show was done in an hour and a half, and the show was live-streamed to audiences nation-wide.

DECENT OMENS THEATRE COMPANY

Inaugural Company Member

Due to the outbreak of COVID-19, in-person theatre became infeasible. Thanks to Artistic Director, Izabel Mar, a group of eager young artists came together to create live theatre through Zoom™. Decent Omens Theatre Company developed a scene study workshop, where I have personally had the pleasure of working on the character of #7 from Sarah DeLappe's The Wolves, and directing a study of John Patrick Shanley's Danny and the Deep Blue Sea

ROMEO AND JULIET

Juliet

This role was performed as part of the University of Redlands Shakespeare Company, a group I started with two friends. Our 1990s Romeo and Juliet was entirely ensemble directed, so in addition to playing Juliet, I also worked on sound design and costumes. The process was free-form, and resulted in four exciting performances.

FIREWALL

Playwright

Firewall: A Guide to Falling in Love on the Internet, was a play I wrote my freshman year about Tinder. The play centered around two characters, Malcom and Paige, as they interacted in the real world and the online world. It examines the world of online dating, and the people we are online versus the people we are in real life. The play was produced at the University of Redlands as part of the New Works Festival in 2017.

CITIZEN KALE IMPROV

Captain

Citizen Kale is the University of Redlands' only improv comedy troupe. I joined Citizen Kale at the start of my freshman year, and eventually rose to the role of Captain.
