Directed and developed workshop production of full length comedy piece Scars with NPR's Ophira Eisenberg : "I have had the pleasure of working with Maggie on a few projects. She has the killer combo of a great amount of experience and education in theatre, storytelling, and comedy AND natural instincts when it comes to the creative process and story structure. She has helped me transform my pieces from words-on-a-page into theatrical pieces fit for stage. Plus she is an utter joy to work with and also just to be around!"
Directed and developed long form narrative presentation Disclosure about gender dynamics in the advertising industry: "Maggie was my director for a Moth Mainstage story as well as my one woman show, Disclosure. She’s an amazing collaborator; she honors my ideas, voice and experience, while providing effective, specific insight and suggestions. She’s an intellectual, artistic and emotional guide throughout the process. She has an incredible eye/ear and instinct for what’s strongest and most important in a story or narrative. She’s also helped me with a novel in progress and her genius works just as effectively on the page."
