At the University of Georgia, I completed multiple research projects with the guidance of George Contini through the Center for Undergraduate Research Opportunities (CURO). I was fortunate to receive a CURO Summer Fellowship and three Research Assistantships. My research included: "Developing an Online Immersive Theatre Experience During a Pandemic," "Biomechanics and Meyerhold's Impact on the Physical Theatre," "Developing a Queer Sensibility and Artistic Identity," "The Impact of Translation on Theatrical Performance," and "The Intersection of Queerness and Mental Health on the Stage."
In the 2019 to 2020 school year, I served as the Artistic Director of the Thalian Blackfriars, one of the oldest chartered theatrical societies in America (founded in 1893). Before serving as the Artistic Director, I was the Business Manager for a year. With Thalians, Iproduced several pieces of theatre including: Collective Rage: A Play in Five Betties, Rootless, Glue: A Devised Piece, A Public Reading of an Unproduced Screenplay About the Death of Walt Disney, and Acworth, 92.
Through the Honors in Washington program, I interned as a Teaching Artist at the Keegan Theatre. I assisted with general theatre management but focused on leading classes with young students throughout the Summer.
I'm also interested in more media and theatre. This includes performance art, like "Lessons in Drowning: An Earth Art Performance Piece" and "C**e," which was inspired by Yoko Ono's "Kitchen Piece."
