I tell stories about women, primarily but not exclusively queer women, and explore the ways that they both struggle and cope with family, love, sexual assault and abuse, mental health, depression and anxiety, queer identity, and Jewish identity.
I started writing plays as a sophomore in high school when I joined the MCC Theater Youth Company Playwriting Lab, taught by playwright Lucy Thurber. Since then, I have graduated Magna Cum Laude from Ithaca College with a B.A. in Theatre Studies and a minor in Web Programming. Just after graduation, my play You Have To Promise received a developmental workshop over Zoom in the 2020 Pride Plays festival, directed by Jenna Worsham.
As a stage manager...
I was introduced to stage management while working backstage as an apprentice at the Mac-Haydn Theatre in high school, and explored this further in college. I have worked on a variety of projects, spanning plays, musicals, works in development and works already much-loved.
In 2021, I had the opportunity to return to the place that started my passion for stage management as the Mac-Haydn Theatre's ASM, followed in quick succession by my national tour debut with Jersey Boys in the fall of 2021, and my Off-Broadway debut with Soho Rep's Wolf Play in early 2022.
I spent my second-to-last semester of college working on a dramaturgical independent study of Steven Levenson's If I Forget; learn more about my work as a dramaturg HERE.
