some stuff about me that you won't find on my resume...
bicoastal actor – born & raised golden southern California, then moved to NYC for college & life lived in faster-tempo. made a home in beautiful Brooklyn for the best of both worlds
from an early age could be found wrangling the neighbor kids into experimental performance pieces –discovering the how of communal storytelling from conception to authoring to design to performance
head over heels for developmental processes, a love fostered throughout college during early collaborations with Grad Musical Theatre Writers @ NYU Tisch School of the Arts
committed to breaking down casting barriers regarding non-binary performers. Now that that's out of the way let's work together on some Shakespeare, Chekhov, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Williams, Porter – & also that new stuff, too (& also tattooed folks! I exist in this industry as a visibly tattooed person & proud of it!)
big on taking trash to treasure AKA a highly crafty individual in a variety of mediums (furniture-maker, collage enthusiast, music noodler, etc.)
hair chameleon AKA can rock literally any hair color or style–except green, jury is still out on green...
wanna see if we're a good collaborative fit?
reach out to my representation...

it's time to be real
I really thought it was so clever, formatting my website to answer the basic questions - you just gotta have a gimmick...
Recently though, when I approach these final essential questions, I get kind of jumbled about. For some reason the why to the how (or vice versa) is so much harder & also easier to answer? That probably doesn't make sense...
The why has vast range: as wide as because and as narrow as this work through play has been my home for over 20 years. This thing started so small & precious in my heart way back in middle school (I'm a sucker for sentimentality). It grew me into a garden & showed me the gardens in others: & I think that’s (part of) why I keep coming back to it.
The how changes daily. It varies project to project. It is hard to pin down. It can be wrapped up in imposter syndrome & nerve-wracking. It looks like trying on new things & experimenting & stretching into shapes I didn’t know I could make. Its evolution is invigorating.
I work hard to be here because here is where I want to be. It is the reason I stay curious about our work, about how we make it, & for what purpose. Stories fill my cup so I come back for more: trying, failing, learning, growing, hoping I can do for others what they have done for me.
