I'm from Washington DC, where I grew up under the guidance of Quakers as a gleeful middle child. I attended Yale University, which furnished me with a handy BA in East Asian Studies, and I took a detour during college to study for a semester at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Later, Actors Theatre of Louisville seduced me away from New York, and during my time developing new plays in Kentucky, I met the four people who became my eternal collaborators. We are The Associates, and I am proud to be the Artistic Director of our devising company.
