Hey there! Welcome!


I'm a theatre artist based in Chicago. I'm originally from the beautiful city of Boise, ID where I earned my BA in both Theatre and Psychology from The College of Idaho. I came to the midwest to earn my MFA in Acting from Northern Illinois University, and fell in love with the thriving, diverse, and incredibly welcoming Chicago theatre scene. 

I'm passionate about storytelling and the way it makes space for human connection, starts conversations, and evokes empathy. Some stories can be an affirmation to our own experiences, while others ask us to view life through a lens we, perhaps, have never considered.

While acting is my focus, I love collaborating in all theatrical capacities. I'm passionate about education and outreach, and keeping curious about how art serves the community. I also love any opportunity to help theatre thrive, whether that be marketing, house managing, or fundraising.

Ultimately, I'm excited about stories and how they bring us together.
