I aim to debunk the myth “art happens.” Art does not just happen-- it takes mad organizational and communicative skills. Theatre Arts, like any other form of expressive art, has more qualities than talent and spontineity. Talent alone does not lift the very human need to communicate what is in the soul. Theatre requires dilligence, dedication, and determination. With my work as an Arts Administrator I am committed to making art accessible and engaging for everyone, both onstage and off.
I’ve spent my time working to better the quality of American Theatre Education with KCACTF (The Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival). Both Regionally and Nationally, I’ve found a home with this organization alongside the thousands of student artists dedicated to celebrating the work that comes with college arts. I found a fervent need to help cultivate equitible environments for student theatre eduation. I am adamant to close that unnerving gap that separates students from their professional dreams.
At the Kennedy Center, I had the opportunity to help organize the 50th Aniversary of KCACTF, “Arts Summit” ‘19, and The Directing/Playwrighting Intensives ‘19. These experiences helped me achieve the highest form of professionalism in my craft, while also giving me insight on how much I can grow in my field.
