Here's a few little bits about me.
Q: Where are you from? Here? A transplant?
A: I grew up in St. Louis, MO. Went to college at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I got a bachelor's in political science. Moved back to St. Louis after working at the HR/Operations manager of the university's public computer labs for a bit. Got married to an amazing guy that I met in college. We moved to California about 4 years ago when my husband got his geek dream job.
Q: What's your theatrical background? Actor? Director? Techie? Fan?
A: Techie. I'm generally a stage manager (I did Private Eyes earlier this season in fact) but I've done props design and am pretty fluent with sound and light boards.
Q: What's your favorite part of doing a live show?
A: I absolutely love listening to the audience response. That instant feedback is really interesting and gratifying. It's always nice to know that the work your doing is being appreciated.
Q: Why Dragon?
A: I approached Dragon to be a volunteer/intern in the fall of 2010 because I liked their season programming. I've done a lot of Shakespeare over the past decade, and while I do love it, I wanted to do something a little more indy and a little more contemporary. I interviewed with Meredith Hagedorn (the founder/executive director) and Lessa Bouchard to see if Dragon and I would be a good fit for each other and I had a blast at the interview. I came home and told my husband that I wanted to work with these women. And I've been really impressed with the professionalism and artistic excellence since getting involved.
Q: Anything else the Dragon readers should know about you?
A: I love the 80s. I'm currently a contributing writer to Culture Brats which is so much fun. If it's weird and/or cheesy I probably like it. I also want a dog, really really REALLY badly. I hope to start graduate studies this fall working toward a Master's in Non-profit Management.
So that's me!
