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 performing and writing with Duchess Riot for the past few years and loving every minute of it. I love Sci-Fi, Video Games, Action, Poerty 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.
