As someone who finds joy in everything I do, I wanted to highlight some of my other involvements that have directly impacted my acting, stage-management, and filmmaking journey.
Lighting & Sound
I have worked as an Assistant Electrician from March 2020 ~ August 2023 at UC Santa Barbara through the Theater & Dance Department. I have also worked for The Ensemble Theater at the New Vic & the Marjorie Luke Theater as an out-source hire, both located in Downtown Santa Barbara.
As of since September of 2023, I work as a student electrician under Kate DeWall at CalArts for the Theater Department.
In regards to designing, I had the privilege to design the lighting & co-design the sound for a reading of William Huffaker's Nasty Little Things.

Over the course of my time at UCSB, I have become more inclined to devise and write my own work. This has manifested in writing for the "GO!" Play Festival twice (Bonded Together and Hazy Waters) and writing Intruder.
As of now, I have been involved in two films in regards to producing:
Blood Over Water directed by Cyrus Roberts
I have been involved with the AMPLIFY Initiative, a student organization through UCSB dedicated to creating safe and creative spaces for those whose voices are under-represented in the theater world (BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, neuro-divergent, & disabled folx), for three years as a Co-Artistic Director.
I have also worked with kids within my hometown community through Shakespeare Kids & PlayHouse 395, both through their summer theater programs for students ranging from elementary to early high school.
At CalArts, I am a student teaching assistant with the Community Arts Partnership (CAP) where I get to help teach theater and performing arts twice a week at a high school in the Los Angeles area.
