Someone recently asked me,"Well, what are you? An actor, a fight choreographer, or a designer? Which do you want to be? You can't do all three."
Well, I say you can be. I don't limit myself as person or an artist; no one should.
I believe that by playing multiple roles in the creative process, whether that be in the directors chair, on stage, making props, writing, anything and everything, you become a better artist, a more successful story teller, and an effective collaborator.
Since receiving my BA in performance from Columbia College Chicago in 2011, I have continually worked throughout Chicago as an actor, choreographer, teacher, and designer at theaters such as the Goodman, Victory Gardens, The House Theatre, Strawdog, Jackalope, The Hypocrites, Haven Theatre, and the Lyric Opera of Chicago. I'm an ensemble member and resident fight director for Muse of Fire Theatre company, and am represented by Big Mouth Talent.
I love riding my bike, personal training, going to the Art Institute, and challenging myself to learn whenever possible.
Thanks so much for stopping by, and feel free to reach out!
