A Bit About Timothy

I am a Brooklyn-based educator, theater artist, and researcher who works across the world to bridge cultural divides, promote civic engagement, and explore issues facing communities in innovative ways.

I believe that every individual and community has the arsenal of knowledge and tools to address the problems they face. Theater and storytelling are two methods that I use with groups to unveil these resources and organize for social change.

My recent work includes using theater with high school students to talk about cultural heritage between conservative and liberal regions of the United States, storytelling with recently arrived Afghan refugee youth to re-learn how to imagine and play in the face of trauma, supporting dialogue between police community members in New York City with improvisation techniques, and more.
