What is your favorite part of your job?
I love not only getting to see every single performance of every show, but knowing that I get to be such a major part of them as well.

Why is Two River Theater special to you?
There are some extremely talented, genuinely good people who I get to work with—whether on staff or passing through on a certain production.

What was your favorite production to work on and why?
This is a hard one. I love so many of them for different reasons. Belle of Amherst was a show I learned a great deal during the process, and Twelfth Night was a very unique show, especially because I worked on both the main stage and Little Shakespeare productions. But I have to say Love in Hate Nation was my all time favorite because of the content of the show and the audience reaction. The student matinees made my heart so happy. Every show reminded me why I love theater—it brings people together, not only physically but in an emotional way.

If you could go back and work on a production before your time at Two River, what would it be?
This one is hard because I don’t hear about many aside from BMC, but I think I would’ve liked to work on El Coquí. It just seems like such a cool show.

What’s your favorite Red Bank restaurant and menu item?
I can’t get enough of Señor Peppers. I order a chimichanga or burrito texano with guacamole. They’re THE best.

What’s your favorite thing to do/hobby outside of work?
I like to be creative when I have time for it. I sing, paint, & dabble in photography.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
I’m also really into music & dance, even if I’m not particularly good at it. Listening to a good song is the ultimate mood booster & dancing around goofily with friends is the best.
