My current improv performance teams are Freak Pony, a house team at Third Coast Comedy Club, and the family-friendly show Gnu Tales, which also performs at Third Coast. I am also an instructor for the Third Coast Training Center – I currently teach Level 2: The Scene
I first discovered the fun of improvisation in high school drama. At that time, my friends & I would meet at the local park & play improv theatre games to no one just for the fun of it. Then in 2009, I was told by a NYC casting director that improvisational skills were something he was beginning to value more & more when casting commercials. With that in mind, I went ahead and signed up for an intensive at Second City Chicago because I was going to be there for a casting. And I fell in love with it! When I made a leap to Los Angeles, the first thing I did was get started in classes over at Upright Citizen Brigade LA. A couple years later, I was on my first long-form team, Bacon Marmalade, performing all over LA’s indie improv scene. Once back in Nashville in 2013, Nashville Improv Company put me in their cast & I learned short-form on the fly. I also played with Exit Stage Left & Yes And Nashville. In 2018, I decided I missed performing long-form and I auditioned for Third Coast Comedy Club.
