Creative Directing

I design and curate a wide array of social events. Here are some examples!

Gallery Events

​​
I curate gallery shows and create outspoken programming for EMP, a multiuse arts space in downtown Baltimore. I am responsible for artist communications and creating special events such as opening parties, happy hours, pop-up performances, musical performances, and creative "happenings". I bring new audiences together through art. I've worked on events with other organizations such as Cultural DC, Woolly Mammoth Theatre, and The Fridge DC. 

Theatre Events

​​
I also curate and produce theatre events ranging from pop-up performances at galleries to full-length theatre pieces. I especially champion new and underproduced work from risk-taking artists. I enjoy uniting artists from disciplines (visual, installation, music, video, etc) outside theatre and collaborating with them on these new works.
