As a theatre director, psychiatric social worker, and university instructor, my passion is working closely with others to create works of art that build community, push expectations, and explore our diversity of experiences. My scholarly work examines how theater reflects and influences our understandings of madness and mental illness. Other interests include applying performance theory across the arts, affect theory, and critical race studies. 


I am currently on faculty at the University of California, Berkeley, where I have taught a variety of courses in writing and research; theater; and acting; and have directed a number of theater productions. I previously taught in the Interdisciplinary Arts at Stanford University. As a clinical case manager and therapist, I have worked extensively with people who are homeless and within the criminal justice system in San Francisco and New York City. I have had the privilege to live and study in Europe, travel extensively throughout Central America, and serve for three years as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Caribbean.
