My name is Brianna and I'm from Portland. I write plays, tell stories, make art, and do film projects. My theatrical work has been developed and performed at Artists Repertory Theater, Theater Masters 2020, Fertile Ground Festival, HART Theatre, Bag & Baggage, Theatre33, Hipbone Studio, Clinton Street Theater, Chapel Theater, Camas High School, Otherworld Theatre, the Playwrights Union writers retreat, and now at the MFA playwriting program at UCLA. My TV work has been developed with Stuber, Farah Films, Hollywood Laundromat and ICM.
I'm also a spoken word / solo performer. I've presented my work at Pickathon (yes the music festival!), OMSI, Portland Storytellers' Guild, Portland Public Libraries, FolkLife Festival, the Storytellers Telling Stories podcast and finally my own limited series podcast with Bag&Baggage.
With the rest of my "free time," I love connecting with my community over causes I believe in. For 6 years I served on the board of First Book Portland, a local chapter of a children's literacy nonprofit, for 4 years I was board secretary for the Portland Area Theater Alliance, and for 2 years I served on the planning committee and as a storytelling coach for Notes of Hope with the HHH Foundation. I'm a young adult cancer survivor and have spoken and/or led workshops at Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Relay for Life, the Northwest Narrative Medicine Collaborative, First Descents, Project Koru, Sunrise Daisy, and ran my own weekly cancer survivor writing group for 3 years at OHSU.
