Gesture, Puppetry & Performance
With my years of experience as a puppet designer/artist, I bring a depth of understanding for creating gestural interaction models that not only allow but support users in transposing their own motion into interfaced articulations.
Theatre is always experimenting with how people relate in space, to one another, to objects, to experiences. My background directing, performing, collaborating in teams to create these experiments gives me an ability to center multiple user perspectives and relationships throughout the process.
"Theatre is an opportunity for empathy building not only in when we share stories with our audiences that might offer a different narrative than they are accustomed to but also in the method of production."
