Artist's Statement
For me, creating original theater is an enrapturing, liberating, fully-encompassing passion.

I am a working actor with experience and drive in every aspect of theater: writing, directing, acting, scenic design, costume design, stage managing, and technical operations. I have performed in the San Antonio theater community for 10 years, acting in my first show at 13 with The Renaissance Guild. I have staged several original adaptations, creating Sob! Choke! Love! in Feb 2008 for the Overtime Theater. The series, an adaptation of 50’s, 60’s and 70’s romance comics, continued with two volumes (Sob! Choke! Love! 2: Electric Boogaloo - Feb 2009, Sob! Choke! Love!: 3D - Feb 2010) both adapted and co-directed by me.

Since then, I have worked with several theaters in town in various capacities, and continued creating on my own. However, my home is at the Overtime Theatre, a place that supports working completely outside the box. In January of 2013, I was given the opportunity to stage my adaptation of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari. This silent, black-and-white adaptation is one of the top 5 grossing shows in Overtime history, and won 7 ATAC awards, including costume design (Sophia Bolles), sound design (Alex Coy), directing (Seth Larson), and script adaptation (Sophia Bolles,) and was completed with a budget of less than $500. With this newest project, I aim to take the leap from adaptation to complete original work.
