 Favorite quote:

“I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours. . . . If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them! ” – Henry David Thoreau

English/ Composition and Speech

Favorite theater experience:

Working on my thesis piece, These Shining Lives, the cast, crew and creative team were all spectacular and we really managed to create a beautiful piece of art that will stay with me for the rest of my life.

Your ultimate vacation destination:

Greece or Ireland.

If you could have one superpower, what would it be?

The ability to re-fill things. . . think about it. Is your bank account empty? Re-fill it with money.  Garage empty cause you crashed your car? Re-fill it with a better car.

The most influential person in your life/favorite teacher or mentor:

Mr. & Mrs. Brown: they single-handedly created and built a theatre program in my hometown where there had never been one before, it is because of them that I got my start in theatre.

What you wanted to be when you grew up:

Until I was about five, I was convinced I could become a mermaid if I swam enough.  After five I decided that I would either be a teacher, or I would marry a rich rancher from Montana and rescue horses and dogs to live on our giant ranch/farm .
