Besides being a big toothed cheeseball, I am a born and raised Oregonian. So you know, flannel, chunky knits, constant rain, and of course, microbrews and ethically sourced coffee make me feel at home.
I have a BFA in Acting from Southern Oregon University and a love for Shakespeare and text work.
I spent the better part of 2019 tootling around the Forest of Arden in As You Like It at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, where I was also a member of their teaching staff.
Since then, I joined the Resident Acting Company of Valley Shakespeare Company, Western Oregon University's professional summer theatre.
In addition, I have continued to build my own company, Struts & Frets Theatre Company, a text based theatre, focused on providing quality productions and apprenticeships to local theatre students.
Here are some things I love,
waffle weave bathrobes, a freshly scrubbed face, cream in coffee, and a glass of white wine. All at once if you're feeling extra wild.
the Modern Love podcast.
the feeling where your heart swells when you hear a piece of music or a passage of text that has warmly laid its little hand in yours.
intersectional productions of Shakespeare focused on dismantling oppressive systems.
the moment a student's understanding clicks, with that audible "oh!"
other people's dogs.
