About

In addition to performing, I am incredibly passionate about educational theater. I believe it is vital for young students to have opportunities to express themselves through performance and storytelling. Theater creates a foundation in public speaking, ignites and challenges the imagination, fosters team building, and inspires empathy. I am constantly creating new curriculums that cater to the school or program I am collaborating with.  I work with all ages in a variety of different formats.
