Hello and Welcome!

Next up, I will be appearing in the Ensemble of Gypsy with Music Theater Works (formerly known as Light Opera Works). I am excited to start rehearsals! For more info, click here.
June 24, 2017: Pride month is almost over! I am proud that earlier this month I got to perform with Chicago Actors' Call to Action in support of Equality Illinois. I sang "Let It Go" from Frozen (quickly becoming one of my staples) and "A Little Bit" by Drew Gasparini. What a great night!
April 30, 2017: What a crazy month! I performed in a cabaret with the wonderful MPAC where my ukulele made its debut (videos to come soon). Also, Priscilla: Queen of the Desert was nominated for 6 Jeff Awards!! See the full list here.
April 2, 2017: What a whirlwind of a month! I closed Priscilla: Queen of the Desert, and then hopped a plane to NYC for a week. I got the chance to take some classes and see some shows-if you are curious about my thoughts, let me know.
February 20, 2017: Priscilla: Queen of the Desert just finished it's first week of extension! We are running until March 12, 2017-so make sure you get your tickets!
December 9, 2016: It has been a minute, world! At the moment I am performing in a Theater for Young Audiences production of The Story of the Nutcracker at Theatre at the Center. I am also rehearsing Priscilla: Queen of the Desert!
August 8, 2016: It has been a crazy summer so far! I have understudied two shows and performed in a staged reading and a cabaret. Now, I am pumped to bring Young Frankenstein to life!
March 25, 2016: Made some fun updates to my website! AND I am in rehearsal for First Date at the Towle Theater and Wizard of Oz at Theatre at the Center. It is a busy spring so far!
