I am actively pursuing opportunities to work in conservation
after serving for 13 years as a Stage Manager.
Theater and conservation share a transcendent mission:
to celebrate and conserve life.

Still inspired by my work in India, in the fall of 2014 I conducted a condensed field research project in the United States. When presented with a month-long layoff between production contracts, I identified it as an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of regional American theater. I quickly plotted a road trip around the United States and wrote emails to more than a hundred organizations. I let them know when I'd be in town and asked for an opportunity to conduct a site visit. Visits with the eighteen organizations listed here involved one or more of the following: formally interviewing a staff member, observing a rehearsal, watching a performance or touring the facility. These experiences helped me gain a deeper understanding of the industry and cemented my desire to pursue regional theater instead of commercial theater leading me to settle in Philadelphia, PA the following year.
