My name is Brianna. I'm from Portland. I like tea, old books and tacky novelty architecture. But probably you came to this website because I write plays, tell stories, and do film projects with my friends.
My full-length theatrical work has been developed at Artists Repertory Theater, Theatre33, Fertile Ground Festival, HART Theatre, and UCLA. My TV work has been developed with Stuber, Farah Films, Hollywood Laundromat and ICM. I've performed at venues such as Pickathon (yes the music festival!), FolkLife Festival, and my own limited series podcast with Bag&Baggage Productions.
My work has been published by Samuel French/Concord Theatricals, Applause Books and Smith & Kraus. You can also find a bunch of my other plays on NPX!
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.
If you want to wear silly hats and get tea, though, I'm game!
