When I was in middle school I joined an improv team with the Arizona Jewish Theater Company. I learned the basics of improv from Second City Alumni, and I also learned how lame my jokes were.
We worked on that.
Later I went on to do community theater around Arizona, and even performed at the Herberger (That's a big deal in AZ). I took karate to harness my inner wax on wax off, and I learned archery, you know, before it was cool.
When I was eleven I booked my first on camera role on a teen show. I asked an Arizona Cardinal (I don’t know which) a question (something SO important, it would blow your mind if I remembered it).
I continued my training in acting when I went to college. I spent half of my time training in performance, half of my time studying psychology, and in a fourth dimension I did internships. At 19 I auditioned and was accepted into the Groundlings. I once again learned how lame my jokes could be.
We worked on that.
Trying to finish up my double degree, I took a break with the Groundlings and completed my schooling in four years.
After college I interned with A Noise Within, where I was classically trained with the best team of actors and directors.
Shortly after I went back to the Groundlings and trained till I was passed into Writing Lab. At the time I had joined the group Duchess Riot, and for the first time in my long career as a Learner, I became a comedy school drop out.
I'm still working on those jokes.
I’ve been performed with Duchess Riot for six wonderful years. I know currently co-Produce/Direct/Write/Perform/and create crazy costumes for the two woman show "The K-Lo Sketch Show!" It is the longest running show at Open Space Theater on Fairfax, and we're very happy to call them our home. I love Sci-Fi, Video Games, Action, Poetry and Comedy. I run a bi-monthly(ish) event for Artists and am an avid participant in Relay For Life!
I’ve got a million interests, but none so near and dear to my heart as creating stories worth telling.
Hello, and thank you so much for checking out my website!
When I was a kid you couldn’t keep me from jumping up and trying to fight the storm troopers when they came on screen. Every day was a new adventure, but the real fun began when I saw my sister in a Murder Mystery play at church. (We went to a pretty progressive church). That was when I realized that you could not only enjoy the story, but be apart of it as well.
I knew from that day on that this was all I wanted to do.
