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)

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...

(a few of) my goals for engaging in our work
