My name is Jay (short for Janna). I am currently an Arts Administration Master's Candidate at the University of Oregon. I have a passion for theatre arts and arts education with a specific interest in working to break down barriers that inhibit participation and engagement with Shakespeare's plays, making his works more accessible to diverse audiences.
Presently I live in Eugene, Oregon with my partner AJ and our cat, The Dude. I enjoy gardening, sunny days, good food (especially dessert), and have a soft spot in my heart for New Orleans. I am in the perpetual process of creating and recreating and am always on the lookout for new experiences that will aid in my growth and development as an artist.
