I was born and raised in Houston, TX. At a pretty early age I became involved in the local theatre scene and grew up seeing shows at The Houston Grand Opera, Theatre Under the Stars, and the Alley. I attended The High School for the Performing and Visual Arts where I majored in Musical Theatre. I earned a BA in Theatre Business from Loyola University New Orleans.
After graduating, I was the American Theatre Wing’s SpringboardNYC Directing Candidate for the summer of 2012. The next two years I spent at Hartford Stage where I was the Artistic Apprentice and then the Artistic Assistant. There I acted as a bit of a catchall, assisting with producing, casting, literary management and dramaturgy. On top of all that, during my second season at the theatre, I also served as the resident assistant director. I worked with directors including Darko Tresnjak, Mark Lamos, Michael Wilson, and Giovanna Serdelli. I moved to NYC in the summer of 2014 where I freelance as a director, creative producer, and writer.
