some stuff about me that you won't find on my resume...

bicoastal actor – born & raised southern California, then moved to NYC for college & life lived in faster-tempo; (now lives in 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

highly crafty individual in a variety of mediums – furniture-maker, collage enthusiast, paint doodler, etc – loves clouds & blue skies – ask me about my next tangible project!

head over heels for developmental processes – a love fostered during early collaborations with Grad Musical Theatre Writers @ NYU Tisch

committed to breaking down casting barriers regarding non-binary performers & also tattooed folks! i am a visibly tattooed person; 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

 

hair chameleon – as in, can rock literally any hair color or style (except green, jury is still out on green...)

...or give me a holler directly – whatever floats your boat!

Thanks for submitting!

wanna see if we're a good collaborative fit?

reach out to my representation...

1.

Every action has an equal and opposite reaction (not my notion, but nevertheless, universally applicable)

2.

Engaging in the principles of art (line, color, texture, value, shape, form, space, balance, movement, emphasis, pattern, unity, variety & rhythm) as basic building blocks for all visual storytelling

3.

Renegotiating/redefining my personal relationship to “failure” & seeking ways of working that are not tied to ideas of self-worth or value

4.

Exploring with a sense of childlike play - if we’re not laughing, something is amiss

5.

Beginner’s mindset: no one knows everything, together we know a lot

6.

Existing in a state of “most use”, as in, how can I help solve this problem? How can I, by using all the tools at my disposal, help tell this story? 

oh boy! an ongoing list of goals/notions

for engaging with our work
