Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

My character-driven plays aim to disrupt complacency, foster empathy, and cultivate hope. As a proud yet conflicted Texas Native, I write to redefine the contemporary Southern narrative in an earnest attempt to dismantle harmful antiquated stereotypes. Before entering into my MFA playwriting program at Boston University, I spent time in various nonprofits working at the intersection of social work, youth development, and arts education. I strive to incorporate those learned and lived practices into my theatre making by developing inclusive, accessible, trauma informed spaces that make way for communal healing.
