Rodriguez, Headshot

My goal is to help decolonize the way we access, consume, and teach American Theatre.

My aspirations and responsibilities do not exist within my identity and community alone — as an American, I believe the complex history and conflicted present of the United States is a part of my storytelling lineage.

I am interested in collaboration with anti-ableist and anti-racist practices kept in mind. I want to tell stories that celebrate the diversity in identity and the range of emotions within the human experience. I am committed to accessibility, equity, and transparency.
