I'm a girl of many hats. I always get anxious at dinner parties when people ask me what I do.
Me: Uhh well, I'm an actor, and a writer.
Them: I heard you were a singer.
Me: Oh yes, I'm that too.
Them: And you also work in social media?
Me: I do a lot of things.
So here is my story.
I was born and raised in Pittsburgh (Go Steelers!) I'm an only child in a big family. From a young age I fell in love with making people laugh. In my family, making people laugh is a sport. So of course I took to the stage.
I studied at the Pittsburgh CLO Academy for 14 years performing in various places from the Benedum stage to the women's section of department stores. And I loved each and every performance. I couldn't get enough.
I went to college at The Boston Conservatory for Musical Theatre. There I grew my love for the stage, and made wonderful friends. And while I was there I found a new love as well, playwriting. The thrill of seeing a character and words from your own brain on the stage is unlike anything I could have imagined.
I moved to New York after graduating and pursued performing and playwriting. I started to take my plays to festivals. And then I realized I love the planning behind the shows as well. Thats when I started producing and running social media campaigns.
And of course when you spend your days tweeting and writing statuses you think of more and more ways to make people laugh. That's when I started taking classes at Upright Citizens Brigade. I study long form and musical improv.
Now I'm back in Pittsburgh in grad school at Point Park University in the MFA Writing for the Screen and Stage program. Polishing my playwriting skills and learning a bit about film as well.
Like I said, I'm a girl of many hats. Sometimes on my days off it's a wide brimmed Sunhat.
