Artist Statement

I am a performer who makes solo and collaborative works that draw on stand-up comedy, music, historical archives, and self-help. My recent shows include Questions to Ask Beforehand (Bridget Donahue, NYC, 2022) and Don’t Rain on My Bat Mitzvah (with Ira Khonen Temple, Creative Time, NYC, 2021). My book of to-do lists, The Odd Years, was published by Wendy’s Subway in 2020.

While at Headlands

I will continue to work on an antizionist bat mitzvah album, which I hope will become very popular one day.
