I was a resident puppeteer at the Center for Puppetry Arts (Xperimental Puppetry Theater, Sam the Lovesick Snowman, The Ugly Duckling, The Shoemaker and the Elves, Charlotte's Web, Rainforest Adventures), performed with Synchronicity Theatre (Bunnicula), Out of Hand Theater (The Show!, Defenestration: The Musical) and Haverty Marionettes (As I Lay Dying), all in Atlanta. I've performed in several puppet slams, including the 2013 National Puppet Slam, and many full and workshop productions, including The Nativity, created by Jane Henson, that aired on national CBS stations on Christmas Eve, 2013. I directed the Little Shop of Horrors Sing Along at the Brooklyn Academy of Music as part of the 2013 Puppets on Film Festival. I've worked as a puppeteer in short films and music videos (see the "Film work" link to the right).
After completing all four levels of Improvisation class at Dad’s Garage Theater Company, I participated as an improv performer with a few groups, including Collective 51, an all-female improv collective that I founded in 2012. I've taken long form and specialty improv classes at The PIT in Manhattan, NY.
