Artistic Director | firstname.lastname@example.org | 612-338-2155
Jack (he/him) has been with Mixed Blood since the very beginning. He founded the theatre at the age of 22, continuing work that began as a summer social-justice project, and has been the Artistic Director ever since. As artistic director, Jack works to realize Mixed Blood’s mission by providing vision, building financial stability, and ensuring quality programming.
Jack’s family has been in the Twin Cities for five generations – and that means he’s a fan of the Twins and the Vikings. He combined his love of sports and theater in March, 2017, when he directed the world premiere of Safe at Home, a 9-scene play performed in the locker room, dugout, and other spaces of the St. Paul Saints’ stadium. In the fall of 2017, he will direct The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, a play adapted from the novel by Mark Haddon.
Why Mixed Blood:
“I support the organization’s purpose and how it connects to our people, our neighborhood, and our field. Since Mixed Blood’s beginning, the mission has evolved, but the core values remain the same. The caliber of our programming, and our connections with community and the field are ever expanding. Mixed Blood’s worldview aligns with my own in aspiring to create a welcoming, inviting, affirming place for all.”
