When do you first remember making the decision to go into the arts?  What were the circumstances?

I decided to go into the arts at age 12.  I was playing Helen Keller in a local production of The Miracle Worker.  It was my first lead role in my first professional theatrical production.  My passion for performing blossomed, and I have been working in theatre ever since.

What do you most enjoy about your work?

I love working with students.  Whether it be in the classroom or on production, I love sharing my passion for the arts with up-and-coming theatre artists.
