A little about me...
I have been in love with the theatrical arts since I was a tot in my sister's high school production of Quilters. It was like playing pretend, which I loved, and I thought it was especially cool that my teenage sister had to play with me!
From then on, I found many opportunities as a child to exercise my performance muscle. I even created opportunities like when my friends and I performed our original musical The Midnight Cry (a murder mystery) in her garage one summer at age seven. Librettist: my pal, Mary Ellen. Composer and Lyricist: yours truly.
Needless to say, all of our garage matinees led me to where I am today, a professional theatre artist in the DC area! I have recently performed at Toby's Dinner Theatre, and in several Catholic U productions.
This past spring, I studied abroad in England at The London Dramatic Academy with Fordham University. It was one of the best experiences of my life. I know everyone says that when they go abroad, but c'mon, there's a reason! I worked on classical acting, dialects, stage combat, Laban, theatre history, Shakespeare, Period Dance, and performed at The Tower of London.
When I'm not working on a piece of theatre, I am exploring my local coffee shops with friends (I work at DC's only Starbucks Reserve, so I am always caffeinated), exploring parks and going on walks, or spending time with my family and spoiling my nieces and nephews. I enjoy cooking and baking, and meeting friendly dogs at the farmer's market.
I am currently rehearsing for Catholic U's production of A Little Night Music as Charlotte, which is playing Feb. 28th to March 1st in The Callan. I am also preparing to co-direct a Shakespeare Cabaret with a close friend this Spring with our student theatre company. Come check them out. They're going to be lots of fun!
