As an essayist and playwright I’m interested in the tensions that form when stories of personal history intersect with the public interpretation of shared cultural history. In my work as a museum exhibit developer I’ve seen how museums constantly revise narratives about the past. In a similar way we constantly revise narratives about our personal lives to create the stories we need to tell ourselves now.
Over the past several years my essays have evolved from straightforward memoir-based essays in mostly traditional forms, to essays of non-traditional forms that juxtapose personal experiences with researched stories—in ways that initially may seem unrelated.
I'm also an emerging playwright and my first full-length play, the solo show EXHIBITING, premiered in April 2019 at the Newton Theatre Company. More information below.
