Plans After KU:
For the summer, I will be touring the upper midwest playing The Beast in Prairie Fire Children’s Theatre’s production of Beauty and the Beast. In the fall, I will go on tour with the National Theatre for Children around the Boston area. Then for the winter, I will perform in Aesop’s Fables, Let it Shine, and Heroes of the Underground Railroad with Bright Star Touring Theatre out of North Carolina until March of 2021. Then hopefully I will return to the KC area and pursue a career there.

Favorite Memory of KU:
Working with the incredible cast and crew of She Kills Monsters my sophomore year. This show lit a fire under me and pushed me to take my future and acting career seriously and to the next level.

Parting Words:
Find the opportunities and do the work. No one will do it for you.
