Biography

Originally from Memphis, TN, Minnesota has become my home away from home.  You can generally find me backstage or behind the camera running to make sure everything is coming together, no matter how chaotic it invariably gets. I graduated from Carleton College in 2017 with a B.A. in Cinema and Media Studies, along with 4 years of theatre production experience. During my undergraduate time, I was infamous for combining theatre and film in all of my projects.

During my Junior year, I became serious about dance as a performer and choreographer. I've choreographed and performed in a number of pieces. After Carleton, I keep my dance skills sharp by taking dance classes. Modern and Ballet are my favorites to perform, and I am always looking for new styles to try.  Working in theatre, dance, and film gives me unique on perspectives on all that I am very grateful for. 

If I'm not working on a production, you can find me being a proper millenial destroying the diamond or restaurant industry, crocheting a scarf, singing broadway musicals in my car, and staying warm this Minnesota Winter with a cup of hot cocoa along with a good book.
