May 2012 - September 2018

After 6 years of development and an amazing broadway run, SpongeBob SquarePants on Broadway has come to an end. I learned more from this project than anything else in my life. It helped me cultivate my deep love for physical comedy, my appreciation for approaching any project with passion and creativity, and introduced me to life long friends and collaborators. I cannot thank everyone involved, from producers to crew to fans, enough. SpongeBob forever.

(And now it really is forever! Watch on Paramount+ if you wanna)
