What's been inspiring you recently?
Re-evaluating why I started creating in the first place and how amazing it feels!
Tell us a story from your childhood that illuminates who you are as an artist.
From ages 5-12 I would put on full one-woman productions for my family (my best audience) outside on our deck. Little did I know, this would turn into my life!
Who are or were your theatrical heroes?
Gwen Verdon is my all time theatrical hero.
What kind of theatre excites you?
The type of theatre that shakes up the community, makes you question why you're even here, and scares the hell out of you- in the best way possible.
What's the craziest thing you have ever needed to do for theatre?
Though it wasn't necessary for the role, I accidentally broke my collarbone doing scene work with my scene partner...
Outside of a theatre, what's your favorite hot spot in Orange County?
Corona Del Mar.
What surprises you the most about your role in the theatre community?
The seemingly immediate inclusivity. Not only just as an actor, but as a choreographer as well.
What advice do you have for theatre artists just starting out in Orange County?
Go for it!!!
Go ahead, promote your things...
