(she/ her) is a freelance theater scenic designer and artist. Her recent designs have been seen at 59e59, Dorset Theatre Festival, Pittsburgh Public Theatre, and City Theatre. She holds a BFA from Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama. Sasha is a featured designer in the 2023 Prague Quadrennial Emerging Exhibit and a 2022 Rising Leader of Color with Theatre Communications Group. She was recognized at the 2019 USITT Young Designers and Technicians Forum, was the winner of the 2019 Lloyd Weninger Award for Stage Design, and was the Scenic Design Fellow for Chautauqua Theater Company's 2019 season. Sasha is especially interested in new work, arts education, and projects that center BIPOC and queer voices. She considers her design process empathetic, crafty, and ultra-collaborative. Her understanding of space and how and where we feel 'at-home' is shaped heavily by her mixed Chinese and Ashkenazi Jewish family.
