Who I Am
I am a dreamer, a doer, an adventurer - an actor, a singer - a teacher of acting, voice & dialects, musical theatre - a lover of dogs (and humans), of board games and delicious food.
Ever since I was young, I have been performing. I made my singing debut at age 7, acting debut at 8, and have not looked back since. I love acting; I discover something new about myself with each role, and find a deeper connection with humanity through each performance.
I deeply value collaboration, and the heart of my directorial style is to ask questions, encourage exploration and allow time and space for everyone to play and discover.
As an educator, I use an integrated approach to working with mind, body, and voice in order to develop a strong and healthy instrument that can easily access a rich emotional life that will serve performers both on and off stage.
I grew up in Dallas, spent time in New England, toured with a theatre company based out of Montana, and eventually made my way to NYC. I am currently based out of La Crosse, Wisconsin, where I am an Assistant Professor of Theatre and Music Theatre at Viterbo University.
I am a Designated Linklater Teacher and hold an MFA in Performance Pedagogy from the University of Pittsburgh, and a BFA in Musical Theatre from Emerson College.
