I want to work with performers who see their creative endeavors as their endgame. My classes are a place for building community, connecting to your inner artist, challenging yourself, embracing vulnerability, and above all, growth and development as a performer. I welcome anyone whose dedicated to showing up and doing the work.
CUE THE CHEESY 'ABOUT ME' BLURB...
A Michigan native, I moved to Los Angeles right out of college and spent the next 6 years hustling to pursue my dreams of being an actress. I had a degree in Broadcast and Cinematic Arts Performance and absolutely no clue where to start in the entertainment capital of the world. I was hungry and committed and LA was one of the most terrifying and best decisions I've ever made.
I moved to Portland in 2019 in order to better connect to my artist heart and take a moment to breathe and build a sense of creative community for myself in another city that believes in the magic of performance art. When COVID-19 hit early on in 2020, I decided to return home to the Midwest where I've had the opportunity to live and work in the state that started it all!
I'm currently located in Brooklyn, New York! I am a student at HB Studio in NYC. I intend to launch On-Going Scene Study at some point during the reopening of the state. I'm currently accepting private clients via zoom.
In the past decade, I've studied in 10 different types of performance classes, worked with several different coaches, auditioned literally hundreds of times and worked on so many different types of sets it makes me tear up with gratefulness to write them all down! I've done theater, commercials, modeling, web-series, music videos, entertainment hosting, sketch comedy writing+performance, self-authored work showcases, passion projects and whatever other versions of performance I've been able to practice over the years. Some of these projects have been exciting and things I'm proud of. Others have been what I like to call "growth opportunities." (Take my classes and I'll tell you all about both!)
The artist I've become is due to each of the opportunities I've taken to perform over the years, and let me tell you, it's not magic or luck or manifesting that's made my successes happen. (Although, luck does help and manifesting is awesome!) If you want to book the gigs, you've gotta do the work. Are you wondering where to start? Or maybe you just want to find an actors gym so you have a space to play regularly and flex those performance muscles! That's where I come in.
As your coach, I will be your biggest cheerleader and your most honest and trusted accountability partner. I want to work with artists who view their creative endeavors as their endgame. Artists who're seeking creative fulfillment, over fame. (And sometimes fame happens too! It's just not the focus for me.) Passionate professionals and hardworking wannabes alike are welcome. My classes don't have space for ego but they do have space for tenacity, authenticism, and vulnerability. We will all work to be the best we can be and we will all subscribe to the notion that there is enough space and opportunity in this industry for everyone who cares enough to show up and do the work. I will continue to grow, and seek, and learn as long as I'm here and my wish is to create that learning opportunity for fellow performers. I believe in actors and the love of this craft. Creative performance is my passion and I continue to dedicate my life to this venture because I truly believe in the value of art and performance. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk...
If you're waiting for permission to pursue your dreams, this is it. Let's work.
