I’m a writer, photographer, performing arts lover, and all-round fangirl geek.
I am proud to be a fangirl geek, whether it’s TV such as Stranger Things or Julie’s Greenroom, movies such as Hidden Figures or the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or podcasts such as Welcome to Night Vale or The Hilarious World of Depression. I also love to read and play video games. You can see more of my fannish side on my Tumblr.
My love of the performing arts is primarily focused on theatre. I have over 20 years of experience working with arts organizations, doing everything from box office to directing. This includes almost ten years with KC Stage, a magazine that covered the performing arts (theatre, dance, music, and independent film) in the Kansas City metro area. I wrote over 100 articles & reviews, and also managed over 100 volunteer contributors, proofread articles, and coordinated publicity/marketing for the organization.
I have a BA in Communication Arts: Journalism (theatre minor) from Park University, and an MA in Specialized Journalism: The Arts from the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism. In May 2010, I was chosen as a Fellow at the NEA Arts Journalism Institute in Theater and Musical Theater. You can see my resume and work skills over on LinkedIn.
