I am in the business of storytelling.
I'm an actor. A singer. A dancer. A writer. A director. A choreographer. A costumer. An activist.
But those are just occupations.
What matters most about me is that I care about people. It's the reason I'm in theatre in the first place--I value the human condition, I love exploring other people's experiences, learning how to understand others for exactly who they are, without judgment. My art allows me the freedom to do this.
I'm currently working on getting into an MFA program for acting. Eventually, I would love to teach at the collegiate level; I also have (vague) plans to start my own theatre company, that links up with social issues organizations. I am most passionate about human rights, gender equality, and giving a voice to those without one. I would love to set up a program (through my eventual company) to bring theatre into detention centers for women, and to victims of abuse. Through my own life, I have been affected by the power of performance and storytelling in ways that have shaped and altered me forever. I want to share this kind of soul-deep transformation with other women, young artists, and aspiring theatrical entrepreneurs.
