What drew you to theater?
My mom bribed me into a theatre Summer camp when I was eight. I guess I never left.
I have a BA in Theatre Arts, but the best experience I have comes from community theatre. History, theory, and etiquette are important, but the value of what I’ve learned by necessity in volunteer situations is immeasurable. I mainly have experience acting, costuming, and directing.
I’m a native Ann Arborite with an adoration for the U.P. Michigan has some of the prettiest land in the world, if you know where to look. I also enjoy variety in my weather, so I’m probably not leaving any time soon.
