Growing up as an elite athlete with a constant itch to incorporate art and music into my daily routine, I was so glad to find a creative way to express myself through theatre. It instantly became my passion and career choice.
As a performer, my goals include using the craft to teach valuable life lessons through storytelling, challenging audiences to consider new perspectives and promoting kindness, acceptance and the value of a good fried pickle.
