Theatre artist inspiration: Amber Riley, Kerry Washington, Viola Davis, Kayla Meikle. People who look like me that are creating spaces for me to walk into.

Project most proud of: Skeleton Crew by Dominique Morisseau. This show was one of the most challenging shows I’ve worked on in terms of engagement to the text and commitment to the environment. It felt like real people occupying space. As an actress, that is one thing I really strive for.
