Amia has served as a director for the 2022 and 2023 Undergrad Shorts (At First Sight Festival of New Plays), as well as the executive producer of the latter. Their work as a playwright and lyricist has been featured in both years. This fall, Amia's newest work, Lolita Play, will premiere as part of the University Players 2023-2024 season.

Above all, Amia strives to create works of multi-disciplinary art defined by precision, empathy and color. They believe in the act of creating as a means of communal healing and revelation, utilizing music, text, and rehearsal spaces as playgrounds of comfort and terror from which to cultivate beauty and truth.
