I am a multidisciplinary performer, with specialties in acting, music, and writing. I have an MFA in Physical Theatre where I studied different techniques and styles of how to use the body on stage and how to create performances. My training was done in Europe with European professors and a unique and enlightening perspective to the performer on stage. In my undergrad, I learned how to devise theatre and created my first one-woman show, which I wrote, directed, produced, and performed.

I was accepted into graduate school for poetry and moved across country to Boston, Massachusetts to pursue an MFA at Emerson College. After two weeks I realized I needed to be doing something else and so I landed myself an internship at a voice and music recording studio. In exchange for an unpaid internship, I was given free voice lessons, and this is where I learned that anyone can learn to sing. I worked my way up to become a voice teacher and administration at the same company.

Realizing that I needed to get back on stage for theatre, I moved back to Arizona to pursue acting again. I missed the environment of creating and studying, so I applied to another graduate school, but this time for theatre. I attended Accademia dell’Arte in Tuscany, Italy where after two and a half years and three different countries I received my MFA in Physical Theatre.

My training has provided me with a unique set of skills and viewpoint to be able to integrate into American theatre. I learned that the Europeans generally devise more work and have a more physical approach to performing, and this is something I want to bring to the stage in the U.S. and revolutionize the way actors approach a character. I have taught acting in classes as well as in workshop environments to children, teens, and adults.
