My Story

Hi! I am a queer, mixed-race musician and administrator with roots in the classical music/opera and theatre worlds. My mission is to fuse my creative and arts-management backgrounds to help build community support for fellow QPOC artists, and to deconstruct the systems that have gotten in the way of that so far. I am currently the Miranda Family Development Fellow at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company, as well as being a member of the Trans Opera Alliance. I graduated from Ithaca College in May 2022 with a Bachelor of Music in Voice Combined with Theatre Arts Management. I love and prioritize new works and plan on keeping them at the core of my work as my career grows from here.

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


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.
