Hungry River Theatre Co.

Arts education in rural communities

I’m a founding member of Hungry River, a theatre collective established in 2011, in Ridgecrest, California.

As their director of education, I developed curricula for every school in the Sierra Sands School District—grades K through 12. I also taught workshops for adults, directed the high school play, and wrote a comprehensive educational guide that satisfied the California Common Core Standards. 

The theatre space we founded is still running programming today.

While earning my MFA, I taught theatre to undergrads at Columbia College as a TA. I guided them through vocal technique and Viewpoints-based practice.
