I ultimately strive to direct because of the togetherness that theatre brings, both to the collaborators on a project and the audience who sees the result. Much of the world's controversy comes from a lack of empathy, and the theatre I make aims to alleviate that lack. I gravitate toward stories that explore unusual sides of human relationships and styles that subvert the audience's expectations without betraying the spirit of the piece. I hope to provide audiences with memorable and touching moments that keep them reflecting on the piece long after they've left the theatre.
