Originally from the Seattle area, I have been performing musical theatre and playing the piano since I was very small. I caught the bug so long ago I've forgotten what life is like without it. It took me a surprisingly long time to bring my piano skills to the table in musical theatre, but since I started, I have been musical directing and playing piano for productions all around Seattle.
I now study Musical Theatre at the University of Washington in a new program which has been developing under the leadership of Wilson Mendieta and Steven Sofia. In addition to my studies, I am also the co-founder of Hanner & Repp, a theatre group that works to create engaging musical theatre, get student-run projects off the ground, and support community organizations. We've raised funds for groups like the Page Ahead Children's Literacy Program and Seattle Humane Society with our productions.
I am entering my senior year to finish up my B.A. in Musical Theatre and B.S. in Computer Science. I love building community and being surprised by art (even the stuff I create), so please drop me a line!
