As a storyteller who acts, directs, and writes, I gravitate toward stories expressing dynamic and dysfunctional relationships that reflect our social and interpersonal climate. I aspire to make stories and storytelling more accessible to and representative of marginalized artists and patrons.
I am a bi-coastal artist represented by Option in the Pacific Northwest and currently living and studying in Boston MA. I have been performing in film since 2011, regional theatre since 2015, writing plays/novels and directing plays/musicals since 2018, and providing audition support coaching since 2019. In 2021, I earned an Associates Degree in General Studies (AGS) and a Career Endorsement in Musical theatre. Currently, I am a BFA Theatre Arts candidate in Acting, Directing, and Playwriting with an emphasis in Social and Racial Justice and Communications at Boston University (BU'24). I am also pursuing intimacy direction and will receive my Consent Forward Artist certification in December 2023 and my Intimacy Professional Certificate in Summer 2024. In addition, I work part-time as the Communications Assistant for the College of Fine Arts (CFA) at BU where I am a featured writer for CFA social media, website, and magazine.
My artistry uplifts the things we already know but are afraid to confront; discussing mortality, grief in all its forms, love through hatred, family, philosophy, disability, queerness, etc. My art doesn't make you lean in. It instead makes you sit back and wait a few seconds to let it sink in.
Recent projects include: Directed/Music Directed The Moors by Jen Silverman and directed by Roz Beven, Tom Ripley in Switzerland by Joanna Murray-Smith, and The Mountains Are Calling… a play written by me and presented as a staged reading as part of the Boston University's School of Theatre Springboard Festival.
As a storyteller, I have a passion for analyzing and discussing philosophy of art and beauty, books, film, music, theatre, and art/artists, finding joy in singing/playing music, and writing songs and poems, and taking in nature.
