Teaching Artist Apprentice for Creative Root

Summer 2022 - I helped create scripts for 2 adapted shows, taught the fundamentals of theatre to ages 5-7 and facilitated the creation of two movies. 

Director of Witch Way

Winter 2022. I pitched an idea for a devised show revolving around witches from mythology and folklore, and was chosen to create  a Lab at The Theatre School at DePaul. Through this lab, I worked with a cast of three to create an interactive show regarding what it means to be a fem person in a world that has traditionally demonized women.  

History of Dramatic Literature Mentor

August 2020 - Present. I work as a teaching assistant for the History of Dramatic Literature class in The Theatre School. I host reading sessions for difficult plays, answer questions, edit papers, and help students build project ideas. 

Lighthouse Immersive Retail 

Feb 2022 - Present. I work for the immersive art show that puts on the Van Gogh Immersive Experience, as well as the Frida Kahlo Immersive Exhibit. 

Lifeline Teaching Artist Intern

Summer 2020. As a teaching artist intern, I helped to lead exercises and activities for students involved in Lifeline Theatre's summer camp program. I worked with students ages 5 through 12, and debriefed with teaching artists after every lesson to help make sure that the camp was running smoothly. 

Dramaturg for Lunch Money

Spring - Fall 2020. Director Damon Kiely was adapting the children's book Lunch Money into a playworks series play at The Theatre School. I was on the dramaturgy team for this production, and helped put together an actor packet while also posing questions to Damon as he wrote drafts of the play. 

Co-Director of The Wonder Project

Winter 2020. I co-directed a devised piece that premiered in the prototypes festival at The Theatre School. Jordan Kost and I assembled a piece that focused on Wonder as a central theme, exploring  disparate pieces of a person's life when approached with a child-like sense of wonder and curiosity. 

Assistant Director of Ninki Nanka

Fall 2019. Jasmine Bracey directed a devised piece that focused on modern mythology, and ended up producing a show in which a group of people find themselves trapped together in a room, only to find out that they have all done something to deserve it. They must collectively as a group figure out who to save, while the rest must perish.
