Favorite Musical(s): Fiddler on the Roof, Ragtime and anything with Laura Benanti (can she be my friend?) or Patti Lupone (Grandma Patti!)
Favorite Directing Experience so far with East Theatre: While our musical productions of Footloose and Cinderella hold special places in my heart, being able to direct my thesis production of These Shining Lives will forever be a memory I hold onto as one of the best directing experiences I've had.
