Hi!  My name is Jarrod, but you probably know my dog, Dixie. She is the more extraverted one.

I work with artists and organizations. Specifically, I am in the business of making theatre, arts administration and community building. Professionally, I spent four years shepherding thousands of artists through the Philadelphia Fringe Festival at FringeArts.  Currently, I am the Executive Director of Da Vinci Art Alliance (DVAA). I also serve as the Associate Artistic Director with Simpatico Theatre where I have honed my skills since graduating from the University of The Arts. 

A Colorado native, and a lover of all things Philly, I am looking to partner with new and dynamic artists, vision-makers and collaborators to bring bold and innovative arts to the region.  Let's connect. Dixie is dying to meet you.
