My Story

Hello! I am a Philadelphia-local theatre artist. I have performed with companies including Theatre Horizon, The Hum'n'bards Theater Troupe, Jaffe St. Queer Productions, Limelight PAC, Going Dark Theatre, Ebenezer Maxwell Mansion, and more. I am a founding company member of The Hum’n’bards Theater Troupe, through which I have performed and directed multiple devised productions. When not working in theatre, I write comedic songs about social justice and host a podcast called My Gay Agenda: An Investigative Podcast.

Sexual Orientation
iSexual orientation describes a person's enduring physical, romantic, and/or emotional attraction to another person.

Bisexual, Queer

Gender Identity
iOne’s internal, deeply held sense of gender. Some people identify completely with the gender they were assigned at birth (usually male or female), while others may identify with only a part of that gender, or not at all. Some people identify with another gender entirely. Unlike gender expression, gender identity is not visible to others.

Non-Binary, Transgender, Androgyne, Queer

iRacial identity is the qualitative meaning one ascribes to one’s racial group, whereas ethnic identity is a concept that refers to one’s sense of self as a member of an ethnic group. At their core, both constructs reflect an individual’s sense of self as a member of a group; however, racial identity integrates the impact of race and related factors, while ethnic identity is focused on ethnic and cultural factors. We celebrate our Keys’ intersectionality and understand that creating one’s racial/ethnic identity is a fluid and nonlinear process that varies for every person. Many folks will identify with more than one background while others will identify with a single group more broadly.
