Do you have any sort of ritual before an audition?
No. But I always treat myself after. Whether it's eating comfort food or watching a favorite movie, I always do something to rewards myself. Because auditioning is hard!
Where did you train in theatre? How has that affected you?
At the McCallum Fine Arts Academy and UT- Austin. MAC theatre really prepared me for most of the aspects of theatre. Such as auditioning and rehearsing etc. But UT acting classes really helped me define who I was as an actor and acting my process. I also spent most of my time at a college student doing theatre around town at different theatres which is the best training for the real world. Working with different people in different environments.
Aida. It's the perfect mix of glamour, tragedy, and rock and roll.
Favorite straight play?
No Exit. It's sexy and existential. It's a really deep play that forces the audience to think about who we are as people and the choices we make and also I love the playwrights take on the after life.
Do you have any performers that you admire or look up to? Why?
James Monroe Iglehart, Liza Minnelli, and Alan Cumming. They all have the ability to take on characters who are larger than life and larger than reality and make them true.
Who is your favorite non-theatre music artist?
What keeps you sane offstage?
Binge-watching Netflix and taking dance class.
Worst thing about auditioning?
Standing at the front of the line waiting for the person in front of you to finish singing. So basically being next in line and listening to amazingly talented people in front of you.
A way of life.
