Johnny mercer foundation songwriters project
This is my fifth year with the JMFSP, a weeklong intensive for young, emerging songwriters in all genres held in conjunction with the American Music Theatre Project. As Associate Producer and Recruitment Coordinator, I oversee the application and adjudication process, helping to evaluate over 200 applicants alongside a team of project alumni and industry professionals.
In 2013, my first original play, Home, was published by Samuel French, Inc. as a winner of the Dramafest festival at Stagedoor Manor, in conjunction with Stephen Sondheim’s Young Playwrights Inc, and I directed the first production in July of that year. I was able to repeat the experience when I won the festival again in 2014 with my second play, In Pursuit of Perfection.
the waa-mu show
At Northwestern, I wrote book, music, and lyrics for The Waa-Mu Show, the country's largest and oldest student-written musical.
In 2019, I co-chaired the musical, which ran in historic Cahn Auditorium in Evanston, IL.

TRUE NORTHWESTERN DIALOGUE
Student Body is a devised play and class about domestic violence and sexual assault prevention. Performed during Northwestern's orientation program for 2500 freshmen each year, I performed and wrote material for the three years, and facilitated participatory workshops for incoming first-year students.
