About Me



I am a graduate from University of California: Irvine with a BA in Drama with Honors in Acting and a minor in Comparative Literature. Art was always an important part of my life and theatre became my passion from a young age. Attending camps and workshops, I learned valuable skills to combat my shyness and enhance my empathy, critical thinking and communication skills. The arts, specifically theater, has the ability to connect humanity through story-telling.


As a teaching artist with Livermore Shakespeare Festival, I experienced first-hand the importance of sharing the arts to young minds. Using the magic of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, my team and I guided students through Shakespeare's story to aid their language, critical thinking, reading, writing, and communication skills. I loved seeing the children's faces glow when they bravely sounded-out 400-year-old words. Their courage and imagination inspired me to take my next step: Move to Washington, D.C. where I hope to continue to share my love for classical texts.
