My Story

Howdy! I'm Michaela, born and raised in Queens (like Spiderman), I'm just your friendly neighborhood theatre kid. From a young age I've had a passion for performance, and over time developed appreciation and interest in design, direction, and management. Basically I love wearing many hats, and being a jack-of-all-trades. As a professional I am seeking both creative and administrative jobs, especially on the developmental level. At this point in my career I would certainly benefit from elements of mentorship/apprenticeship and guidance. I would also love to participate in workplaces that foster community, like a repertory or collective. I'm rather loyal and love getting to collaborate with the same folks on multiple projects when I get the chance. My favorite kinds of shows are big Broadway musicals, and dark comedies (for example, ...Spelling Bee, Next to Normal, Bad Jews, Peter and the Starcatcher.) This industry is headed in a very queer and open new direction and I want nothing more than to be a part of it: bringing fresh, diverse, important stories to the stage, while having fun along the way. My stage management professor taught us that our most important tool is a good sense of humor, and I try to live by that.

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

Queer, Panromantic, Demisexual

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.

Genderqueer, Agender, Non-binary, Gender non-conforming, Transgender, Genderfluid, Void Transgender

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.
