About Gus

I’m a Brooklyn-based performer, writer, director, designer/developer, and tinkerer.

Prior to an industry-busting pandemic, I performed in New York and around the country in plays performed in-person on real, physical stages. It’s still weird to think about. I’ve been seen at the Humana Festival at Actor’s Theatre of Louisville, Geva Theatre, Arizona Theatre Company, and many more. I love to dive into things and make exhilirating theatre with a room full of great collaborators.

For the last two years I’ve sent out a weekly newsletter called The Curtain. It’s loosely about arts, theatre, film, culture, and technology, but it can get pretty far-reaching. Many people seem to enjoy it. You can subscribe and read more here, or browse through all my essays in the feed.

I also dabble in playwriting and screenwriting. I love film and have been dreaming about getting into filmmaking for a while, as well.

In addition to that, I’m a self-taught web designer/developer. I love making websites and getting my hands dirty crafing some clean, accessible HTML, CSS, and (gulp) Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with technologies and exploring different creative things that computers and the internet can do. If you’d like me to design you a website (especially if you’re an artist or non-profit), please email me.

I was born in Davis, CA, grew up in Rochester, NY, and currently live in Crown Heights, Brooklyn with my partner Mari on occupied Lenape land. I’m of Armenian, Lebanese, Egyptian and Irish descent. But identity is complicated.

You might consider signing up for my weekly newsletter, The Curtain. It's wide-ranging, but mainly I cover cultural psyches, media philosophy, performance and the internet. I try to make it feel personal, and hundreds of folks seem to love it. You can also browse through the archives here.
