Born: In a blizzard on the fourth Thursday in November. There was a national holiday to celebrate.

Raised: With my parents and baby bro in Massachusetts.

Living: Concrete jungle where dreams are made of.

Squad: My husband - the specialty puppeteer. My dog - my bestie.

Theme partied I mean STUDIED: At Point Park University in Pittsburgh - Musical Theater, natch.

Gimme more: Musical improv (3+ years on house teams & the Friday night long-form show at the Magnet Theater). Sketch comedy (2+ years/300+ performances in  off-Broadway's How 2 B A New Yorker). Stand up & storytelling (testing the waters). Showtunes (unaware of other types of music). Greek beaches (self-explanatory).

Absolutely not: Sour cream (it may as well be called "rotten food"). Going to sleep without brushing your teeth (number of cocktails is irrelevant). People who put recyclable items in the trash when a recycling bin is RIGHT NEXT TO THEM (rage).

Meet me: In the Hawaiian jungle at Restore Your Roar.

Finest moment: Forgetting to pre-set my doll prop in a Christmas show and being forced to do my big scene as the Virgin Mary holding a rolled up rag as the Baby Jesus while the man playing Joseph cries with laughter into his mic instead of singing "Mary, Did You Know?" and my future husband is dressed all in white and is literally leaping around in a lyrical combo behind me.

Yes: "If you ask me what I came into this world to do, I will tell you: I came to live out loud." - Emile Zola
