The Chicago native has had the opportunity to perform in Now is the Time with Little Lord, Iona Flies Away with Tanisha Christie, Expense of Spirit & Limitless Joy with International Wow (Josh Fox), Sponsored by Nobody’s The Arts & Behind the Bullseye, and The Making of King Kong by Lisa Clair at Target Margin Theater.
Her own project I Digress: The Intimate Insights of a Childhood Weirdo, a four episode transmedia performance memoir, has been in transformation and development over the last five years.
