here's some stuff about me
that you won't find on my resume...
Bicoastal actor - born & raised in a sleepy southern California surf community; moved to NYC for college & life lived in fast-tempo (now lives in Brooklyn for the best of both worlds).
As a child, could be found wrangling the neighbor kids into experimental performance pieces (including immersive wild west dramas set inside chalk cities, large scale dance numbers with masks, improvised concerts at the drop of a hat); an early passion for discovering the HOW of communal storytelling from conception to design to performance.
Highly crafty individual in all types of mediums including collage, resin, furniture-making, sculpture, painting, embroidery, textiles, doodles, etc. Most recently: turned a scrap wooden door into an incredible multi-function work/dining table with neon smiley face glitter & resin.
Head over heels for developmental processes; a love that began during early collaborations with Graduate Musical Theatre Writers @ NYU Tisch, on pieces in a variety of stages from first workshop to World Premiere.
Committed to breaking down the casting barriers regarding non-binary performers, as well as tattooed folks! Proud visibly tattooed person: now let's work together on some Chekhov, Moliere, Shakespeare, & the new stuff, too.
Also a hair chameleon: as in, can rock literally any hair color or style. Except green, jury is still out on green (if you wanna see how THAT looks, let's work together & find a role that suits)

acting • generating • problem-solving
why? because i love living life in a state of play.
how? by seeking opportunities for fun everywhere
why? because i thrive when solving problems
how? by coupling dedicated research (asking my mind questions over and over) with kinesthetic exploration (asking my body/heart/gut questions over and over)
why? because i'm redefining failure in my process
how? by speaking & working in draft form; learning to operate from beginner mindset (no one knows everything, together we know a lot)
why? because i want to be part of a curious storytelling community
how? by approaching the work with a generous collaborative spirit & celebrating the contributions of all collaborators openly and often
why? because i'm invested in hope
how? by embracing growth & change both as a human and an artist: i am not today who i was yesterday
why? because i believe that i can change the story
how? by daydreaming about the limitless future & interrogating the limited past
this is where
it gets real...
