I am an actor, activist, director, designer, teacher, and creator originally from the San Francisco Bay Area, currently living in Los Angeles. I graduated from Harvard College with a degree in Theater, Dance, & Media with emphases on African American Studies and Women, Gender, and Sexuality. In addition to training at Harvard and with the American Repertory Theater, I have studied at the Atlantic Theater Company and the London Academy of Dramatic Arts, among others.
As an actor, I have performed and studied a wide variety of styles in a wide variety of spaces: contemporary work on the American Repertory Theater's Loeb Mainstage, a musical in the A.R.T.'s alternative club space OBERON, Caryl Churchill in a field, Shakespeare in a black box, and devised experimental work in an entirely immersive world. I am compelled by art that asks the hardest questions, no matter the form.
As a creator and activist, I have always been passionate about using art to create social change, focusing on principles of socially engaged art. I work to help tell stories that don't always get told, and to create work that pushes boundaries while creating safe spaces for marginalized individuals.
