Emma would describe herself best as a Roller Coaster Aficionado, Lover of Silly Dances, and Corny Joke-Teller Extraordinaire.
Emma is a queer, disabled creative artist, actor, director, and educator. She is a certified Lessac Practitioner for Body and Voice, a Disability and Accessibility advocate, a Theatrical Intimacy Choreographer, and Trauma-Informed Consent-Based Practitioner certified in Mental Health First Aid.
After earning her MFA in Theatre Performance in 2015, she spent several years traveling the US, making theatre with young people between the ages of 5 and 18. After her mighty sojourn, she returned home to Atlanta to get back to work in experimental theatre (or as she lovingly calls it, "the weird shit"). Her current field of research is examining the relationship of chronic pain and illness to art and performance, as well as doing the difficult work of unlearning the lies of urgency and scarcity in our industry.
To date, Emma has been to 49 of the 50 states, and maintains that buffalo sauce is a nectar of the gods.
Emma is a tremendous talent
and a consummate professional.
Her maturity and work ethic
stands her outside of her colleagues.
She would be an asset to any company."
- Sean Boyd, MFA Committee Chair
Emma is mature, and is an engaging mix
of genuine humility and assertiveness...
In a nutshell, she is one of the most creative,
talented, determined, and disciplined
individuals I know."
- Dr. John Countryman, Director
