Biography

I think of myself primarily as an improviser. I've performed improv anywhere that will have me because I just simply love creating theater. I also perform in scripted theater and have collaboratively written a show as part of the Twin Cities Horror Festival. I write poems and sing songs with my ukulele. If I need to use Russian or Spanish, that's sounds great. I speak both languages at a conversational level.
