producer ✶ designer ✶ director

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

I’m the Senior Creative Producer for the Shorty Awards. We give people awards for creating amazing things on the internet. 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.
