artist bio

Born in West Allis, I've lived a very migratory life for the past 15 years, exploring and creating living art both nationally and internationally, but I am so so happy to be back at my roots, near family and friends, bringing these experiences back to Milwaukee.

A mask maker, performer and educator, my personal goal is to engage audiences through non-traditional means. To find that lovely collaboration of active complicite, not passive apathy to the story being told. I am also interested in the blending of unique skills of the actor to bring stories to life physically, incorporating physical theatre, circus skills, dance, acrobatics, music and maskwork to heighten and expand the audience's expectations of what is possible in the theatre.

Previously, I received my BFA in Directing and BS in Theatre Education from Viterbo University in LaCrosse, Wi. From there I also received my MFA in Ensemble Devised Physical Theatre from Dell'Arte International in Blue Lake, CA.

Currently, I am playing Tiny Tim in the holiday panto "Bah Humbug" at Piccolo Theatre in Evanston, IL (through Dec 22). I am also teaching kids improv at Citadel Theatre in Lake Forest, IL and teaching voice and movement at Alverno College right here in Milwaukee.

I am also devising two works concurrently at the moment, a one-woman piece and a three person physical comedy both of which are on a timeline to be on their feet by this summer.
