I am a performance poet and speaker, and I have a BFA in Theatre Studies from Boston University's theatre conservatory. I thrive on opportunities to perform, particulary for students, special interest groups, and with creative collaborators.

Art Residency at PlatteForum: One-Woman Show "Good Grief"
In March of 2011, I was the creative resident at PlatteForum in Denver, CO. During my residency, I wrote and performed a creative lecture called Good Grief, exploring personal and cultural themes of loss. In October of 2011, I performed a multi-media incarnation of Good Grief in Brooklyn, NY, and I am available to perform this piece elsewhere. I am also available to speak at colleges, high schools, and for special interest groups on a variety of topics including grief, cross-cultural communication and travel, entrepreneurship, building a creative life, growing up in a military family, and working within marginalized populations.
