Directing

Championing new and in-development works by Artists of Color is my main objective. I promote respectable color conscious casting, reimagine folklore and classics, and design radical movement and choreography. I am a visionary director in service to articulate the playwright’s language.

With mastery in text work and analysis, character development, and fluency with voice and body work, I am adept in creating truthful, nuanced and multi-dimensional characters on-camera and for the stage. I elevate the director’s vision from the page to the stage.
