director ✶ producer ✶ designer

Hey there! You look great today! Is that a new shirt? Thanks for stopping by.

I’m a producer for the Shorty Awards. We give people awards for their social media work. My job starts with project managing our website, heading up our creative, watching a lot of things on YouTube and around January becomes event production, talent liasing and a whole lot of other things. I like it.

My background is in theatre and film - both as a director and an actor. I know how to put on a show that keeps you thinking in circles long after you’ve left the room. I like it.

When I first moved to New York, I found myself directing a play in Bay Ridge - it went well! In the summer of 2015 - I co-founded a theatre company, Artilliers, that makes the classics new again. We were making theatre in a gallery in chinatown with incredibly talented and insightful people. We’re not working on it anymore but we learned a hell of a lot. I liked it.

When I’m not doing any of the above, or having a social life, or ordering cheese plates, I’m designing things. You can see more of that on my blog and my Society6. I like it.

This was a long winded way of saying that I’m here to create. If you made it here, you can make it anywhere - say hey. I’d love it.
