Since a young age, growing up in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, I've been an avid singer; school choirs, small singing groups, or even just alone in my room blasting Ozzy Osbourne, it's something I have always loved to do.
Though I dipped my toe in small theatre projects throughout my childhood, it wasn't until high school that my love of music met a passion for acting, and my spark for live theatre was truly ignited. Joining the cast of Guys & Dolls at the age of 14 changed the course of my life forever. From there, I went on to the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point where I continued to study of theatre, earning my BFA in Musical Theatre Performance.
This led me to Chicago, where I based myself for six years working as a performer, musician, playwright, and vocal teacher. The Windy City gave me opportunities to perform in many theatrical productions, including three national tours, as well as to become a proud member of Actors Equity Association.
I recently graduated from the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training in Sarasota, Florida, where I earned my MFA in Acting. This is another opportunity that has shifted the trajectory of my life, who I am as an artist, and as a person. I've been able to work with some of the finest theatrical artists I've had the pleasure of meeting. I can say, without fear of exaggeration, that I would not be the artist I am today without my experience here, surrounded by brilliant actors, designers, and production staff, including Broadway stars, Tony Award winning directors and composers... the list goes on.
I keep my thoughts forward, embracing our theatrical world as a performer, teacher, writer, dialect coach, and director, where I will continue to seek deeper truths, stronger connections, and more powerful understandings of life through this beautiful medium of theatre.
We begin again.
