My play Remains and Returns has been selected for the Ashland New Plays Festival, happening October 2022 in Ashland, Oregon.

The St. Louis Shakespeare Festival has selected me for its Confluence Writers Project, culminating in a staged reading of a new play in spring 2023.

My plays have been produced or developed by Golden Thread Productions (San Francisco), The New Group (New York), Paines Plough (London), Playwrights Foundation (San Francisco), Queens Theatre (New York), and Silk Road Rising (Chicago), among others. My work has been recognized by the Jeff Awards (Best New Work nominee) and in multiple years by the Bay Area Playwrights Festival (two-time finalist) and the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s National Playwrights Conference (four-time semifinalist). I live in St. Louis with my husband.
