Hi, I'm Tristan!
in Washington, DC
I'm a playwright and game creator interested in queer, trans work and the intersection of theatre and games - including making meaningful, interactive experiences for audiences.
I am currently a member of the Playwrights' Center and Freelancer’s Union. I also lead a mentoring program for DC-area theatre practitioners and work with Young Playwrights’ Theater. As a former resident of the Orchard Project’s Liveness Lab and CultureHub's Writing For Electronic Formats, I discussed and cultivated new ways of presenting theatrical work in digital spaces. In early 2023, I wrote, performed, and streamed “in a way that matters,” developed as part of The Kennedy Center’s Local Theatre Residency at the REACH.
From playwright Danielle Mohlman: "[Tristan] does weird in the very best way — weird that makes you think and wrestle and marvel and care."
My work for 2023 is funded in part by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities through the Arts and Humanities Fellowship Program.
