First introduction to the industry:

I grew up dancing, doing theatre, and visiting theme parks when I could. I was hooked on being a part of those creative experiences and am so excited to get to help create new ones.

What I listen to at work:

I love movie soundtracks when I need to really concentrate and upbeat rock/alternative rock/Disney music when I need a pickup.

Dream Vacation:

I have always wanted to scuba dive with whale sharks and see the Great Barrier Reef, so an Australia/New Zealand trip is high on my list.

When I'm not at work...

I’m baking, crocheting, enjoying the great outdoors, or hanging upside down at an aerial studio.
