Experienced in supporting productions across mediums in a variety of capacities, including virtual and remote events. Excited to transfer theatre production skills into live events of all kinds. Superior organizational skills, extreme attention to detail and an appreciation for teamwork and collaboration contribute to successful projects, from conception to completion. Started producing as a theatre teacher, responsible for managing an annual budget, allocating funds for a season of programming, raising those funds through fundraisers and grants and then guiding students and parent volunteers through productions of all sizes, including musicals. 

Currently Executive Producer at Maroon Arts & Culture Founded in 2019 with mission of empowering the global majority through art and performance, Maroon AC seeks to re-think the way arts organizations are run and how they engage their audiences. With generous support from our donors and funders, we have been able to produce several virtual and in-person events. Additionally, we partner with Black and Brown artists and other small organizations in order to provide the production support they need to bring their creative visions to life.
