Resume

I am the Literary Manager and Resident Dramaturg at the Shakespeare Theatre Company in Washington, D.C. I was previously Associate Dramaturg at Baltimore Centerstage, and I have worked as a freelance dramaturgy with the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, the Great Plains Theatre Conference, McCarter Theatre Center at Princeton University, Yale Rep, Williamstown Theatre Festival, and the Public Theater.

I am a Writing Fellow at Yale School of Drama, where I am completing a dissertation on the Weimar theater of Erwin Piscator, and I have taught at the Catholic University of America and the Eugene Lang College at the New School. I have also appeared as a guest teaching artist at American, Carnegie Mellon, Denison, Georgetown, George Washington, and Ohio Universities, as well as Lutheran College, Washington Seminar. I have served as a master teacher for the last four years at the American College Theatre Festival at the Kennedy Center, and this spring I will be a Guest Artist and Panelist for KC CTF, Region 2.

I have served as a judge for the Helen Hayes Award, and as an advisor on funding panels for the Community Partnership for Arts and Culture (Cleveland), the D.C. Commission for the Arts and Humanities, and the Baltimore Cultural Alliance. I hold an MFA in Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism from Yale Drama School.
