Current Projects

PNW Intimacy Professionals

I am a co-founder of a group of Pacific Northwest intimacy professionals working towards an anti-racist and trauma-informed approach to intimacy direction that meets the needs of our region. To that end, I am also a member of Seattle Theatre Leaders and part of Theatre Puget Sound's Member Advisory Committee.

Recent

Troilus and Cressida

(Seattle Shakespeare Company)

The great tragedy was losing this play (though we did have a reading in 2021). Having been asked to do the intimacy direction in addition to my responsibilities as the assistant fight director and an actor in this play, I was devastated when we had to cancel. The Seattle Shakespeare Company was working very hard to create a safe and collaborative space for this difficult show to come to light. You can hear more about the great work that was being done in this video recorded just before the shutdown.

Training

A lifelong student

I am looking forward to the next project once we are safely though the crisis. Please contact me if you need an ID!
