i believe in Leading with our heart so that we live, love, and create in ways that matter.

My goal as an artist is to contribute towards inclusive and diverse storytelling, especially in the way existing stories are told and portrayed.

I stand for love, hope, magic, freedom, equality, curiosity, compassion, and courage. I seek to tell the stories of characters who fight for these values. For example, I want to play each of the Disney princesses available in the Musical Theatre cannon and redefine these women as paradigms for inclusion, diversity, and possibility.

I believe that by bringing the lens of possibility and humanity to the forefront, theater has the power to create a space and place where everyone feels like they belong.
