Summary

In October 2014, I started improv training with Leela in San Francisco. I auditioned to be part of one of their troupes in March 2015, and have been part of YUM! since then, which is directed by Christopher DeJong. Guest directors have included Sarah Shoemaker, Nicole Odell, Diana Brown, Jill Eickmann, Joe Liss, and Marilet Martinez. I also improvise with an LGBT troupe I helped form, performing with Casey Trujillo, Able Christian, Dillon Thomas, and Steven Burnett, and directed by Diana Brown (previously Michele Salami). In 2017, I debuted an original improv format I developed called So You Want a Job, a reality TV style job interview and narrative show, inspired in part by Donald Trump (it debuted on Inauguration Day).

Over the years, I’ve also taken various improv workshops in Australia, Malaysia, Seattle, Honolulu, and San Francisco. I was invited as an individual to perform in a once off mash up show at Improvaganza, the Hawaii Festival of Improv, and as part of YUM!, have performed at the Antelope Valley Improv Comedy Festival, SF Sketchfest, and the Hollywood Improv Festival.

Acting experience includes playing the lead female in the one-act play I co-wrote with Ellen Jurik, Gary’s Place, and starring in Michelle Munyer’s short film, Go Your Own Way.
