  • Writing Coach
    • I am a process-based writing coach. I focus first on the writer’s needs, and then on the craft of the writing itself. I have experience working with writers at all levels. Writers leave each session with three things:  1) a specific idea of what to do next 2) enthusiasm for doing this 3) a concrete deadline.
  • New Play Dramaturgy
    • I’ve studied, worked with, and/or created numerous new play development models. I’m passionate about new play development, and am happy to do everything from consult to run audience talkbacks.
  •  Commission
    • Theatre-for-Teens Co-Labs
      • I work with a group of young people to build a script using devising techniques, improv, kinesthetic dramaturgy, and “cold performances” as the source material. The result is a play that challenges the young people while playing to their strengths.
