me ok so here are some things about me:
1. i am a creator/writer/director/and sometimes performer
2. i am also someone who gets to submit work for staff picks !
3. my work has been shown at The Brick, The Tank, pinkFROG cafe, SFPC/CultureHub, and i was recently an artist in residence with my collaborator (& friend) Matthew Antoci at IRT
4. also i'm a big fan of animals but not in a weird way
5. sometimes i crave a burger and am unable to shake away the craving no matter what i eat so usually i have to go get myself one but i don't have a favorite spot nearby because i feel like the ratio of veggies to bun or veggies to patty has to be a little specific but i'm also happy to walk around until i find something
6. (related to 5) i think i have an iron deficiency
7. seven feels like an unlucky number to end on
8. i actively work on resisting feeling of needing to be understood.
