I write emotional plays, and I use laughter as a portal to get to a deeper and darker place.

I grew up in the middle of nowhere New Hampshire. I’m the daughter of a sweet animal hoarder and a pot smoking military man. I learned quickly that contradictions make for good characters. I’m a proud member of the Amoralists' inaugural class for ‘Wright Club, and the all-lady ass-kicking Beehive Collective. I recently served as Co-Artistic Director to the Award Winning LabRats Theater Company. The Rats production my full length play, The Rise and Fall of a Teenage Cyberqueen, garnered two NYIT awards Including Outstanding Premiere Production Of a Play and Outstanding Director. Last year, The Farm Theater commissioned me to write and collaborate with three colleges over the course of 2014/2015, the resulting play, In the Event of my Death was produced at Ashland University, Centre College, and Clark University. In the Event…had its New York premiere in August of 2016, produced by Stable Cable Theater Company. Vertigo Theater Company has produced several readings of my work, and commissioned me to write a sight specific play at Gleason’s Boxing Gym in Dumbo. My shorter pieces have been performed all over the country- from Bowery Poetry Club to the Kennedy Center. Most importantly, I’m a die-hard Red Sox fan.
