what i offer

As a multi-hyphenate artist I have many areas of interest and a variety of skills to offer. In addition to my training as a performer and singer I also offer services in...

+ Directing 

+ Acting/ Monologue Coaching

+ Creative Visioning, Administration and Project Management

+ Fundraising Ideation, Production and Execution

+ Book Cover Design

+ Action/Movement/Creative Protest design, direction and execution

+ Teaching (Acting, Le Coq, Neutral Mask, Mask, Movement, Clown, Group Devising and Writing, Embodied Voice, Improv, and ensemble training) 

I am also a facilitator; trained to help groups hone their values, systems and creative processes to improve work outcomes and working relationships. I can design and facilitate retreats and work sessions to help groups identify their mission and values, make difficult decisions, and shift the work culture from one that is fraught and imbalanced, to one that is harmonious, communicative and enriching for all. 

Please reach out if you would like to work together in any of these capacities or beyond!

I am currently expanding my skills into the world of film, beginning with editing and screenwriting, as well as taking up ceramics!
