Born in the cold streets of Minneapolis, I never stopped playing, one might say, “I play too much!”. Starting the acting journey in Hosterman Middle School, 6th grade in my first improv scene, the teacher who played in a Tostitos commercial, told me I did well and I should look into acting. I was thirteen when I went to the John Casablanca school for acting. In high school, I was on the improv team performing on Drama’s mini auditorium (Black box)stage for your lunch period. 2007 I was in school pursuing a degree in Elementary Education, I landed a gig a comedy revue at the Bryant Lake Bowl called “THE T-SPOT” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lodhdh1DFZ4. During that time I heard about Second City and decided after the semester I would move to the Chicago area to pursue their program. So I did. I moved to Chicago, finished the Second City Training program then took iO improv classes as well as Actors Studio’s courses Screen Study and Meisner Technique. ‘Moderly’, my first Harold team, coached by Tim Soszko, played for a few years while I booked shows all around Chicago including the twisted yet hilarious musical, Attend the Tale Of Danny Tanner: A Full House Musical. Once I moved to Houston, I made the Project Yes Harold Team, Stretch Donahue. I performed with Station Theatre’s CAN’T TELL US NOTHING in stages around Texas. Now, I perform every week with SUGAR. WATER.PURPLE at Coldtowne Theatre. Outside of the performance world, I am trained in Facilitation for Authentic Relating and have been facilitating emotional intelligence workshops for one year.
