It’s that time of year again! This post covers some highlights of the past year, along with some things I am looking forward to in 2023. I’m also planning to revamp some sections of my website early in January, so keep an eye out for that!
At the beginning of 2022 I started an email list to share each these monthly blog updates so if you are here from that, thanks so much for stopping by. If you’d like to sign up for the mailing list, you can do that on the Resume & Contact page. Wishing you many wonderful adventures in the new year.

Throughout 2022 I directed two new plays in podcast format, dramaturged several others, and provided administrative support for many readings and workshops.
Continuing a tradition started last December, here’s the year in production artwork for the projects and theatre seasons I worked on:
