I work in theatre as a mask maker, puppeteer, director and teaching artist. For the past few years I have been working in arts administration at a local theatre company in addition to freelance work. I grew up in the farmlands of Missouri, and have since lived in Minneapolis, Northern California and Brooklyn. I enjoy a balance of the urban and the wild, and travel when I can to explore. I am a bike commuter and a terrific vegetarian cook. I like graphic novels, fire pits, redwood trees, a good book, gallery walks, making things, and wordplay.
