What is your favorite part of your job?
Educating and working with future theater creators, and collaborating with our community.

Why is Two River Theater special to you?
I moved from Texas to work at Two River, and everyone instantly made this place feel like home. The programs and productions at Two River are always amazing to work on. I’m grateful I get to work here and make an impact.

What was your favorite production to work on and why?
El Coquí Espectacular and the Bottle of Doom was incredible to work on. The student matinees and workshops with the students were the best. The show also meant so much to me as a Latinx artist.

Breakfast: Everything bagel with all the cream cheese from Bagel Station

Lunch: The burrito Texano with chips and guacamole from Señor Peppers

Dinner: Anything from Bombay River

Other treats: The garlic bread from Urban Coalhouse, Cupcakes from Cupcake Magician, and ice cream from Lighthouse.

What’s your favorite thing to do/hobby outside of work?
I love reading, writing, going to concerts, traveling, watching movies, and listening to podcasts.
