Actor ~ Singer
I'm originally from Northern Kentucky, near Cincinnati, Ohio. I've been referred to as a "forever inventive satirical songstress" by BroadwayWorld.com," a smart broad with a helluva voice" by Cabaret Scenes, and a performer who "makes the most of bad material and manages not to go sharp or flat" by the Times Square Chronicles. I'll take it!
Over the past few years, I've found a home working with Vanguard Theater Company, based in Montclair, New Jersey, using my skills as an actor, singer, and teaching artist to build up the next generation of incredibly talented young performers. Vanguard works with local artists and Broadway veterans to build a community for young performers than focusses on diversity, reciprocity, education, awareness, and mentorship. For more information, check out Vanguard Theater Company.
I love writing and producing my own small venue shows, and have helmed several solo acts in the city: THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS, DIRTY THIRTY, and APRIL LEONHARD GOES TO THE MOVIES.
I am currently working on an album of comedy songs, MULTIPLE SARCASMS.
I love cooking, reading, making stiff cocktails (check out @justgirlydrinks), dyeing my hair, vintage looks, drinking obscene amounts of coffee, my dog, and emotionally draining roles.
