Artistic Statement

Artistic Statement

I write perception-shifting scripts that simultaneously make you laugh out loud, cry and want to pull your hair out. My writing frequently concerns identity and stereotyping with a focus on art as a tool for social change. Using humor, dance, and provocative issues, my plays reel people in, particularly those who wouldn’t normally find themselves at the theater. My scripts range from small one-person shows to large casts with multimedia elements. I am intrigued by collaborative, cross-disciplinary work that spans a variety of genres. My previous projects have incorporated elements of photography, dance, animation, video, and social media. I would like to continue exploring the use of various media in my art with a particular eye towards using the arts and technology to connect people through their similarities in order to transcend their differences.
