ABOUT ME

I am a Tony Award nominated theatre producer passionate about developing new works that highlight narratives not often seen onstage through song and storytelling.

Two months after graduating from Cornell University, I made my Broadway producing debut as a Co-Producer on the Tony Award-nominated play SEA WALL / A LIFE. The two-time New York Times critic's pick production starred Jake Gyllenhaal & Tom Sturridge and recouped its full $2.8M investment in its 9 week run on Broadway. Additionally, I served as the Associate Producer on the tour of the two-time New York Times critic's pick production of HUNDRED DAYS, following its acclaimed run at the New York Theater Workshop. During the industry shutdown due to COVID-19, I line produced Broadway Does Mother's Day, a virtual celebration featuring performances from Bette Midler, Bernadette Peters, and many more, raising over $170K for Broadway Cares' COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund. Additionally, I produced all of the Arts & Culture programming for the virtual human rights festival, Transformation 2020, featuring Heidi Schreck, Adrienne Warren, Lauren Patten, and many more.

I served as the Associate Producer at Seaview Productions, a theatrical producing company that produces innovative theatre on and off-Broadway. At Seaview, I supported the recent Broadway production of SLAVE PLAY  and work on many upcoming productions including the Broadway bound  LEMPICKA. I have worked on roughly thirty Broadway productions through internships with two of Broadway's leading marketing and advertising agencies, SpotCo and Situation Interactive, a highly regarded Broadway producing company, Harbor Entertainment, and a prominent Broadway general management firm, RCI Theatricals

My producing work also includes a concert of FALLING OUT: A New Musical! at Feinstein's/54 Below as well as Raise a Glass: The Music & Lyrics of Drew Gasparini, a sold out concert featuring the music of contemporary musical theatre songwriter, Drew Gasparini at Feinstein's/54 Below. 

I am a recent graduate of Cornell University's class of 2019. While at Cornell, I had the opportunity to direct two full length plays, BAD JEWS by Joshua Harmon and CONSTELLATIONS by Nick Payne. Additionally, I was the first undergraduate producer of Cornell's annual 10-Minute Play Festival. Most recently, I served as Teaching Assistant to Erica Rotstein at Drexel University's course on Commercial Theatre Producing and Management.

I was selected to be one of TEDxBroadway's 2019 Young Professionals. Additionally, I was the recipient of Cornell University's Drama Book Award for outstanding achievement in theatre and The Hewitt School's award for excellence in performing arts.
