Hi! I'm Bree. You probably already know a little bit about me, but you're here now, so I assume you would like to know a little more. You've come to the right place.

Right now I'm not actively looking for new work opportunities, but I'm always interested in learning more about what people are making and what they may need. If you're wondering if I'm the gal for you then keep reading.

If you like lists, start with one of these:

CREATIVITY

Inspired by research and experimentation to disarm audiences and engage in productive conversations around texts and performance, to support inclusivity in the arts and the workplace, and to enhance project success and efficiency.

ADVOCACY

Empathy, evidence and equity drive my mission-focused messaging and representation for organizations and causes imporant to me - environmental justice, food security, literacy and health among many more.

WRITING

It started with UIL Ready Writing, developed with fanfiction and teenage angst-riddled poetry, and refined with research, unique voice, and dramatic structure - my writing ranges from instructional training materials to external reporting, to personal essays and memoir, to speculative fiction.

COLLABORATION

Theatre relies on artists with separate expertise and diverse styles to contribute to a unified vision with respect and trust. I bring this perspective to all that I do with peers, colleagues, friends and audiences.
