  • Class of 2011

  • Roots of GU experience: Davis Center (on/offstage), The Laboratory for Global Performance & Politics, Nomadic Theatre
  • How have you carried the Davis Center’s ethos of creating new work and collaborations? Yes to all the above! New play development (35+ projects in the last ten years) as an actor and a producer; I co-produce festivals in Morocco, Saudi Arabia, and Qatar; Co-founding LubDub Theatre Co participating in local activism in NY and in connection with the above work. All of it grows out of seeds planted and nurtured at Georgetown.
  • What did you study and did you pursue graduate school? I was a double-major in Government and Arabic and earned my Masters from the East 15 School of Acting in London, UK. 
  • What are some professional highlights? Creating LubDub Theatre co with Davis Center and TPST alums Robert Duffley and Miranda Rose Hall; working with Target Margin over the past six years on durational Thousand and One Nights project; Becoming a Fellow for the GU’s Lab for Global Performance & Politics; returning to Georgetown with On The Lawn!
  • What are your most important skills you learned in the Davis Center? Collaboration; Justice; The idea that theatre and its artists can be MANY things (an appreciation for complexity and a commitment to interdisciplinary and cross-cultural work)

My biggest wish: continue forging a web of relationships among all of us who have the privilege of learning and growing through GU theatre!
