I AM A Director AND Actress BASED IN NEW YORK CITY

Born in the bustling metropolis of Middleton, Wisconsin (home of the International Mustard Museum), I caught the theater bug at age eight: playing Zazu in a reenacted version of "The Lion King" in my basement. Since then I've directed and performed in productions in New York and around the country. My work uses vulnerability, music, and laughter to awaken empathy and ignite important conversations. I’m particularly excited about ensemble-based, character-driven stories, and the crossover between art, philosophy, and social good. I strive to make theater that is collaborative, impactful, and inclusive.

I received a BA in Theater from Dartmouth College Summa Cum Laude in 2017, and studied a semester of Shakespeare at the London Academy for Music and the Dramatic Arts. More recently, I have performed at Playhouse on Park, Northern Stage, The New London Barn Playhouse, and Signature Theater in collaboration with Columbia University. I have assisted artists such as Ed Sylvanus Iskander, Katie Lindsay, Sarah Cameron Hughes, Marina McClure, and Jeremy Pickard.

I am always excited to hear about new projects and productions. Please reach out to meet with me, ask a question, or just to say hi!
