Directed and designed an immersive production of Jason Zabel's play CHIEF, which tells the story of an 11-year-old boy who finds himself abandoned in the backyard of an alcoholic woman named Gloria Firm. When a mysterious man in a loincloth appears in the Firm’s backyard, Chief’s story begins to splinter to pieces as he is forced to grapple with haunting memories of abandonment and loss.
Directed, adapted, and designed this energetic, puppet-filled retelling of Louisa May Alcott's classic Little Women. Littler Women was born in my Uptown apartment, and after 6 sold-out shows (meaning there was no more room on the couches or floors and the boxed wine had run out), it was decided that Littler Women needed to be staged somewhere a bit more legitimate... like the Minnesota Fringe!
Created and performed in collaboration with actor and director Jeanne Willcoxon. Set against the backdrop of today’s turbulent economic landscape, Mama's Boy draws on personal and cultural stories to examine the delicate relationship between a mother and her son. Returning to his childhood home as a mature man, Son struggles to redefine his role as "son," as Mother confronts her own limitations and desires in preserving her memory of what their relationship once was in the past.

Directed, adapted, and designed an explosive retelling of William Golding's Lord of the Flies. With a cast of eight actors and four drummers, this fast-paced adaption explored the fear of seclusion, the loss of innocence, and the turn to savage.
