I grew up in Bakersfield, California and left the sunny best coast for the alternately freezing and humid climes of Ohio, where I received my BA in Theater and Music at Denison University. Besides falling in love with the intemperate weather - or what non-Californians call "seasons" - college is where I found a passion for activism, raising awareness for sexual violence & assault on campus and promoting a climate of conversation & consent.
I moved to New York City in January to pursue my career in acting (like all young hopefuls), and earn my daily keep as a personal assistant and bartender (like all jaded actors). I thought that when I moved to the city I wouldn't find the time or the outlet to serve my passion for service and female empowerment/equality, which is why I'm so glad my work has led to my involvement with the Born This Way Foundation and Dark Matter Productions. I love that DMP has a shared investment in women's stories & women in theater, but even more that they have a heart for telling under-served and ignored stories.
With my background in PR, social outreach, and marketing, I begged DMP to let me come on board, which just proves my long held theory that whining can get you everything you want in life. In short, I drive myself a little bit crazy running around the big apple trying to do all the things I love, but theater pieces like the one's DMP focuses on are my true passion projects.
My jaw hinges and snaps back like an alligator
The flying squirrel is my spirit animal
My ability to binge watch is UNPARALLELED
Stanley Tucci is my dream man with my dream career
