IMPROV
COMEDY


In the “before times,” I was performing several nights a week in the Portland comedy scene.

My home base, Kickstand Comedy, is a nonprofit theater breaking down barriers to performing art through dynamic programming and outreach. They’ve done great work in the community to create an inclusive comedy space that features a diverse range of perspectives. Kickstand has attracted some amazing talent and is the best place in town to see quality comedy.

The groups I perform with include Queer Ye Queer Ye (Portland’s only all-queer improv team), Etchasketch, and Soup’s Up (Kickstand Comedy’s in-house development team). I’m also on the recurring cast for Portland’s favorite weekly improv show, Secret Aardvark at Kickstand Comedy.

Of course, I’ve contributed my graphic design, copy, and marketing skills to promote Etchasketch and Queer Ye Queer Ye on social media. This summer, I created the logo for Kicked Out!, Kickstand’s official zine.

CREATIVE
COLLABORATION


There are few things that thrill me more than the unexpected magic of collaboration. It’s a practice in vulnerability, patience, and delightful discovery. My most recent collaborations include photo and video projects with Portland artists and brands, including Mal London, Justine Vanderpool, Produce Portland, Sticks and Stones Jewlery, and Common Brand Co.

I’m a storyteller at heart. From a very young age, I’ve involved friends, family, and the occasional unsuspecting stranger in my artistic shenanigans. From casting my neighborhood kids in my backyard productions to styling my highschool friends in conceptual art shoots with my Polaroid, I’d use any medium available to tell my stories... if only I’d had TikTok back then.

In 2006, I produced my first film, Bound to Silence, a short about two young women falling in love. It won 1st place for the high school category at the Ashland Independent Film Festival. During the Award’s Ceremony, I sat at a table next to Bruce Campbell. In 2012 my second short (and first dance film), Petrichor, took 1st place for the college category. I did not sit next to Bruce Campbell, but I did have a great conversation with Brian Knappenberger.

Before pursuing my degree in Advertising, I danced around 6 hours a day in pursuit of a degree in Dance. My love of media often intersected with my dance practice, which is what lead me to pursue professional work in creative strategy, advertising, and design.
