StudioEmcee is a creative collective that develops contemporary stage productions that often blurs the boundaries between music, drag, theatre, and other disciplines. My name is PJ O'Neal and I am the founder and artistic director of StudioEmcee. My passion for many disciplines made it possible for me to create a space where my knowledge and creativity can thrive. I call New York City my home, and is my muse for all things I do. I am also a professional food writer and have been featured in national publications such as Food & Wine, Bon Appetit Magazine, and Allrecipes. As a queer, Black creative who spent over a decade in foraging a worthy portfolio, I am proud my expertise, uniqueness, and talent can be shared with the world.
