I'm from Washington DC, where I grew up under the guidance of Quakers and a pair of outstanding parents. 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. After graduation, Actors Theatre of Louisville seduced me away from New York, and I gobbled up new plays in Kentucky. I am the Artistic Director of The Associates and a gleeful middle child.
