Wow! Here we are in February! After surviving the -50 degree windchill, I think I can say I am officially a Northern girl. Life has been both picking up speed and settling into routine here in the Twin Cities. It’s been a while, so here’s a bulleted list of what’s been going on:
In October – I performed in Theatre 301’s The Laramie Project (our performance lined up with the 20th anniversary of Matthew Shepard’s death, it was an emotional journey).
In December – I was hired on as an actor with Minnesota Crisis Intervention Team, an organization that employs performers to aid in police officer training in mental health and crisis intervention. http://www.mncit.org
Saturday August 11th marked the end of my first Minnesota Fringe production, and I could not have asked for a better team or a warmer welcome to Twin Cities Theatre.
Our playwright and director, Riley Parham, crafted a wonderfully thought provoking and hilariously endearing script that left audiences pouring out support online for our future work. Just look at these reviews:
Working with Riley and his assistant director/choreographer/costume designer Jordan Grzybowski was an absolute delight. The two of them created a little family out of our 6-person-ensemble, and by the end of the run I walked away with a new group of friends in my new home.
I cannot wait to see (and be a part of) this incredible company’s future. Follow Blinking Eye Theatre of Facebook to see what we get up to next!
I am so excited to announce my first Twin Cities production!!!!! I’ll be working alongside some talented performers and artists in Blinking Eye Theatre’s fringe production of “Swipe Right.”

“Swipe Right is an original comedy by Riley Parham that satirically analyzes what it would be like if we talked to each other in real life the same way people talk through text and dating apps like Tinder. Anyone who’s been on a dating app has seen some absolutely absurd, and potentially hysterical, messages. Jump into a world where people introduce themselves OK Cupid style and fail or succeed based on the first message they send.”
Hey there! Posting from rainy (and actually snowy….) Oregon today!
It’s been an entire year since my deep dive into stage combat at SAFD NATIONALS. I miss these friends and our work so incredibly much. As a tribute, I’ve included a little snippet from my unarmed sequence, choreographed by SAFD Fight Director Chuck Coyl with the handsome and talented Brandon Brockshus (https://brockshustheatre.com).
