I am a playwright, sound designer, composer, video editor, and director based in Ithaca, NY. I am co-director of Story House Ithaca, an organization that brings people together to share, study, create, and enjoy stories in all their forms. I co-founded and continue to be an organizer of Porchfest, a festival that began in Ithaca in 2007 and now takes place in more than 170 cities across North America. I worked for over twenty years at the Kitchen Theatre Company, working on dozens of productions in various capacities and helping to grow the organization. My play about abortion research, The Turnaway Play, recently received a workshop and public reading. I am also a swing dance instructor!
