Voiceover actor. I am currently perfecting my “operatic chipmunk voice.”

Amahl and the Night Visitors. I was the Page!

4. My favorite opera is…
La Cenerentola

Post-show, I love eating Italian food and having a nice glass of wine.

It was in a production of The Magic Flute, when I sang the Third Lady. The costume was steampunk meets super woman, all tied together with glowing lightning bolts.

10. Why should people go to the opera?
Because it is a chance for them to step out of reality and into something magical for a few hours. It is a chance to find peace and can be extremely healing, especially with all of the negativity in our world right now.

Q: Where do you want to travel to next?
A: Iceland is somewhere I’ve been itching to explore.
