An avid explorer of the world, Naomi often finds herself at the intersection of the arts, business, politics, and activism. She has a particular affinity for social advocacy, and therefore supports institutions such as New York Women in Communications and Urban Librarians Unite. Naomi has worked across industries—from fashion design and children’s publishing, to national security at the Obama White House. Like many in DC, her career in business consulting consumes her life with linear data and bureaucratic processes. She is therefore enthusiastic about exploring creative performances that unearth authentic, eclectic, and nuanced elements of the human condition.
Sooner/Later, written by Allyson Currin and directed by Gregg Henry, catapults the audience into the life of a single, working, middle aged mother Nora (Erica Chamblee), her charming, possessive, teen-aged daughter, Lexie (Cristina M. Ibarra), and a sarcastic and dubious suitor-turned-companion, Griff (Tony K. Nam). The performance is a comedy about love and loss, and draws us into complicated relationships that are timelessly relevant as they touch the fears, desires, and expectations that any American woman-young or seasoned, may experience in her lifetime.BWW Review: THE LAST SUPPER at The Kennedy Center March 17, 2019
