About

Hello! I am a rising junior from Hartford, Connecticut, in the English Department and Program in Theater. As I enter my third year at Princeton, I am starting to shape my future as a theater-maker right here at this University. I was not always sure that I would be pursuing a certificate in theater, but I surrounded myself with people, students and faculty alike, who believed in me and thought that I would be a powerful voice in the program. Although I always had a passion for performing before I came to Princeton (and continue to perform on campus), I discovered a new love and appreciation for tech and administrative work in addition to design (specifically lighting) and directing. My desire to better myself as a theater-maker pushed me out of my comfort zone and led me to think heavily about taking on leadership roles in the theater community. I have not always sought out a leadership role as it pertains to theater but am looking forward to stepping into those roles in my final years. I am incredibly grateful for the people and the resources available to me that led me to this path with their counsel and support.

I started doing student theater on campus my freshman year with Theatre Intime and am still heavily involved with creating theater in that space. After working on campus at Princeton Summer Theater, a summer stock theater company, I was encouraged to join the Program in Theater and I did. I am so honored to have the privilege to be a Peer Arts Advisor and represent the student theater community in addition to the Program in Theater. As I continue to find new ways to make the theater community a more open and inclusive space, I hope you will reach out to me with any questions, comments or concerns! I'm here for you!
