Born in California, I lived in New York City from 1990-2008, before moving permanently abroad for the past 9 years. Have lived in Turkey and Australia, before relocating to Norway in February 2014.
My primary education is in live theater and dance as a practitioner--actor, director, choreographer, dancer. Experience wrought from circumstances has lead me to do more producing and arts management for the past 9 years, and serving as a freelance Producer of live theatrical stage art & entertainment in Oslo is my primary profession today. I work primarily for Grusomhetens Teater & Lars Øyno, as well as groups such as performance artist Øystein Elle / Capto Musicae, director Birgitte Fjeld Bjørsvik, and choreographer Keith Thompson (New York). I have also done freelance work for Siri & Snelle Productions, Martin Slaatto, Ulf Nilseng / TOYBOYS, and Apropo Theater (Bucharest). These duties including touring management, grant applications, stage & production management, and assistant direction.
I have also published over 40 articles in English, French, Norwegian, and Belarusian, in various journals, magazines, and newspapers. Subject matter includes interviews with professional artists, reviews of live performances, commentary on artistic trends, and more.
When not working with my producing duties or spending time with my family, I am a voracious reader, a lover of cinema, and a long-time practitioner of yoga. I do not drink or smoke, am hard working and articulate, and have a reputation of reliability, responsibility, and efficiency.
