My Story

Passionate about telling authentic stories, I recognize that my queerness is a gift in which I can offer to rooms a truthful, nuanced view. I play roles across the gender binary, and enjoy seeing new, daring perspectives on queer/nonbinary roles. One of my favorite things is being able to play traditionally cishet male characters. Above all, I work hard to ensure with all of the roles I embody, that there is a deep sense of humanity. I'm currently getting my BFA in Acting from Otterbein University, and am being trained as an actor combatant and intimacy captain.

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

Queer, Lesbian

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.


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.
