About

I’m a storyteller through the arts.  My first and foremost love is to tell a good story – using any artistic means that will best tell it.

Writing my first full length story at age 7, I’ve been writing short stories, poetry, and books for most of my life.  An aspiring novelist, I participate in NaNoWriMo every year and highly recommend it to anyone who loves to write.  I’ve worked as both an actor and theatrical technician and have designed, built, and performed in puppetry.  My steady job as a voice, acting, and dance instructor at Otsego School of Dance and Performing Arts pays the bills, but (as anyone in theatre knows) freelance gigs come along every once in a while and bring me more artistic means to tell stories.

Along with my work in theatre and writing, I have discovered a love in dance photography and headshots. Feel free to roam around the resumes and galleries to see my work.  Don’t hesitate to contact me with any inquiries, questions, or a general “how do you do?”
