What is your favorite part of your job?

There’s nothing quite like being in a rehearsal hall. My favorite part of being a theater artist is the collaboration. A fully equal and collaborative rehearsal hall is next to heaven.

Why is Two River Theater special to you?

Two River Theater is a place where I truly believe all voices have value. Every person who walks through the doors is believed in, supported and respected – and given a chance to show up as their true self and be celebrated for it.

What was your favorite production to work on and why?

August Wilson’s Radio Golf was a particular delight! Every day of that rehearsal process was a full of joy. We laughed as hard as we worked and I think that was clear in performance.

If you could go back and work on a production before your time at Two River, what would it be?

I would pay big money to have been in the room for even a second of the Topdog/Underdog process.

What’s your favorite Red Bank restaurant and menu item?

Almost nothing in the world beats the brussel sprouts from Triumph.

What’s your favorite thing to do/hobby outside of work?

I spend a lot of time writing and I’ve recently starting painting. They’re all terrible but it’s at least fun.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

My favorite (unofficial) holiday is The First Monday in May better known as the Met Gala.
