Where are you from? Saint Paul, MN.
Broadway credits: Spider-man: Turn Off The Dark, The Addams Family, Wicked.
How did you hear you’d booked your first Broadway show? I was called directly by the head company manager of Wicked while I was home teaching a summer intensive for the Saint Paul Conservatory for Performing Artists.
What is your favorite event in the Broadway community? When someone makes their Broadway debut. There is something so special about getting to see someone fulfilling that dream; and it is a credit no one can ever take away from them, they are now a Broadway Performer. That is always a big and very special event in my eyes.
What’s something about Broadway that fascinates you? The community. It’s fascinating to me how there can be just so darned many ridiculously talented people in our community. Half the time I’m just standing there, mouth agape, in awe of those around me.
What, other than theatre, has inspired you recently? Tim Keller’s podcasts, always. Wow.
