– Photo Play, an evening-length theater piece about a family and chosen family struggling to connect through the pages of a photo album. On a broader level, it explores humanity’s collective preoccupation with snapshots: why we take pictures, what they mean to us, how they shape identity, and what happens when we modify, delete, or share them. An early 20-minute draft of the piece was performed at I.R.T. Theater in 2015. It was developed into an evening-length script through Field Work (a program of The Field) and a residency at the Holes in the Wall Collective. A workshop performance of Photo Play was staged in March 2018 at Dixon Place in NYC.

– Review of Celeste and Jesse Forever, a film co-written by and starring Rashida Jones, for theGLOC.net:
“They share an intimate verbal shorthand that mimics the easy rapport of a great first date…which is a problem because Celeste and Jesse are in the throes of a divorce. They’ve been separated for six months but are determined to escape all the messy, painful bits and skip straight to the part where they’re best friends who happen to be dating other people.”
– Feature on Jennifer Childs, Artistic Director of 1812 Productions, an all-comedy theater company in Philadelphia, for theGLOC.net:
“If making other people pee their pants was a sport, Jen would be an Olympic champion (though I’m not sure I’d want to judge that event). Her company includes women as creative collaborators at every level – which, sadly, is still pretty radical. But here’s the key: by including them without undue fanfare, she presents it as the norm – no big deal.”
– Interview with comedy duo Mel & El on theGLOC.net:
“Friends and partners in crime since they were twelve years old, Mel and El are a hilarious musical duo who have graced stages throughout New York City and on the high seas with their pitch-perfect banter-y goodness.”
– Peace and Noise (essay) in the first Girl Crush Zine:
“Several times on the street, we locked eyes as she passed, and I was able to breathe out a little. In reality I knew I was dumbly gravitating to places where I knew she might be, but never had I wished harder that I could conjure someone into existence.”
