Chicago and Me

Seven years ago, I moved to Chicago from Seattle.  I landed in a whirlwind of auditions and new opportunities and took on all sorts of fun and wonderful projects.  One of these projects was a ridiculous show called "Impress These Apes," which, if you're in Chicago and haven't heard of it, you should totally check [...]

Northwest Tour Update

I lived in the pacific northwest--Seattle, specifically--for nine years.  Although I'm from the south originally, the pacific northwest always felt like home.  It was a no-brainer for me to at least attempt to do a tour out this way.  I toured my first solo show, The Good, the Bad, and the Monkey to Bellingham, Seattle, [...]

Thoughts about the show from an audience member…

I am having a delightful time performing my one-woman show, 185 Buddhas Walk into a Bar...  I can't believe that the run is almost over!  When I got online this morning, I was greeted by a lovely message from an audience member who saw the show last night.  Here is the message: "I cannot stop [...]
