My love for ensemble work started in a basement in Ohio, recruiting my siblings and neighbors for musical revues and original works (I still think some of the best work can be created in a basement).
I studied drama at NYU Tisch School of the Arts, with a concentration in physical acting & clowning. Inspired by the clowning principles, I strive to bring a curious, generous spirit into the room. I’m passionate about joyous, ensemble-driven work and the classics, but I find excitement in all kinds of theatre. When I’m not onstage, I work as a teaching artist, sharing my love of Shakespeare with young people.
I’m a dance cardio instructor, logic puzzle solver, and koala enthusiast. I love spending time with my big Greek family and our two dogs.
