I am a Chicago based actress, Shakespeare educator and preservationist. What that means is that on a perfect day I get to bump into someone who's tasted my preserves at Beans and Bagels Rockwell, teach The Scottish Play to 7th graders, plan summer sessions for The Viola Project where I act as artistic director, learn some lines for the next chapter in One Year Chekhov where I am a founding ensemble member, attend rehearsal for my next storefront theatre gig and then uncork some dandelion wine from last summer to unwind. Life is good when you're making art, teaching art, and eating art. I represent myself in all aspects, though I by no means got here by myself.
