Takes on Shakes is a bold new video series exploring iconic scenes from Shakespeare. It's designed to help educators with distance learning.

"As the Messenger, seemingly an outsider to this world, Waterstone is balletic with grace and timing as he butts his way into Alcinoe’s field of vision, yet unstudied, open to possibility, with an off-kilter twinkle in his delivery that never lets the world around him settle."
-Lily Janiak, Review SF CHRONICLE
An Alumni of PlayGround-SF's Directing Apprenticeship I have directed with Young Playwrights Project and Monday Night PlayGround at Potrero and Berkeley Rep Stages!
PlayGround is the Bay Area’s leading playwright incubator, providing unique opportunities for the cultivation and development of early-career local playwrights and partnerships with leading professional directors, actors and theatres. I look forward to meeting more playwrights, actors and directors in the Bay Area.
Current Digital Producer and Digital T.D. for Fuse Theatre's Co-Exist Festival.
What is digital producing?
Digital Production work essentially is a way to deal with production quality and design during the pandemic and with Theaters unable to physically gather. It works in lieu of or in conjunction with a Lighting Designer, Set Designer, Sound Designer, Technical Director, Board Operators and Tech Support. To fulfill these roles a digital producer creates assets, troubleshoots technical needs, edits/designs and collaborates with other designers. The output is live producing/mixing in OBS at each performance/event, and optionally integrating each production with Live-Streaming or Recording.
BULLET by Becky Key Boesen, which I directed premiered at the New Orleans Fringe Festival.
