A little about me...

I have been in love with the theatrical arts since I was a tot in my older 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 with The Puppet Co, Grassroots Shakespeare DC, and the 4208 Club. 

I had the privelage of studying abroad in England at The London Dramatic Academy with Fordham University my Junior year of college. 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, 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 performing in The Puppet Co's production of The Fantastic Tale of Rumpelstiltskin which in playing at The Puppet Co in Glen Echo Park until May 22nd. Go to my home page for the link to tickets! Come check it out. It's lots of fun!
