It's really happening: my first ever solo show. 

click here )


After spending over a decade in NYC as an artist, working, learning, and growing- I have begun to notice some shifts in my perception of things. My idea of success, and what it looks like, has changed, and my idea of what I need versus what I want has changed. So when a dear friend suggested I present a solo show, it sat for almost a year and a half, until I felt like: one, I could tackle this, and I wanted to, and two, it was the right time. Presenting this solo show now, feels like a continued evolution of myself as human and artist. 

The show will be a evening of 4 solos presented as part of Gina Gibney's POP Series at the Agnes Varies theatre in downtown Manhattan next June 29th, 30th and July 1st.  

I am honored to announce I will be creating in collaboration with the brilliant artists : Pavel Zustiak Gabrielle Lamb, Adam Barruch and a piece of my creation. 


I have launched my indiegogo, and what I am seeking is your support of reaching an initial fundraising goal of: $10,000. This will be divided among rehearsal space and time, the artists time and collaboration, costumes, lighting, PR materials, theatre staff, and theatre rental. I am committed to honoring everyone's time and dedication to this project by compensating them, for which I am asking your support.

Any support would be greatly appreciated-I look forward to sharing this process with you, and I will see you in June!
