I am a theatre director and arts administrator currently based in Los Angeles on Tongva land.
I use she/her pronouns and identify as mixed-race (Japanese-American and European-American).
I am passionate about theatrical, non-naturalistic, poetic storytelling that builds community, bridges difference, and imagines a hopeful future. I am currently the Associate Artistic Director at Boston Court Pasadena where I lead community engagement and partnership initiatives.
My recent directing projects include the world premiere of Unrivaled by Rosie Narasaki with Boston Court and Playwrights' Arena; the world premiere Frankel & Bloom chamber musical We Three Sisters and Shakespeare's Measure for Measure with Method & Madness Theater Co., a classical theater company I co-founded; as well as workshops and staged readings of new plays for Playwrights Union, EST/LA, the Road Theatre, Occidental College's New Play Festival, SkyPilot, and Actor's Circle Ensemble. I have assistant directed on shows at Pasadena Playhouse, The Geffen Playhouse, and the Getty Villa among others.
In my previous life I was a scenic designer for theatre and worked as an Art Dept PA for Blumhouse's horror anthology Into the Dark.
