I love music! And for me, it is hard to listen to music without moving to it. I dance as often as I can, and I have my entire life. I can be seen dancing in Julie Taymor’s Across the Universe where I worked with world-renowned choreographer Danny Ezralow, in concert with Adam Lambert, and in various commercials and television shows such as Nissan and CBS’s The Mentalist.
I started singing in the eighth grade when I auditioned for the role of “Nancy” in Oliver!, and surprisingly I got it! Prior to that, all of my singing had been in the shower, car, or with hairspray cans at birthday parties, I’m an 80’s child so I used a lot of hairspray!
So, when you put together dance and song and go to a university 90 minutes by train from NYC, Broadway was a natural choice after graduation. I was on Broadway 6 months after I moved to New York. My professional dance career in New York lead me to performing on Broadway and in the First National Tours of Fosse, Wicked, Sweet Charity, Fame on 42nd Street, and The Pirate Queen. I continue to keep my musical theatre chops up in stage productions throughout California and have played the roles of “Lousie/Gyspy” in Gypsy, “Cassie” in A Chorus Line and “Lola” in Damn Yankees.
