Hello! I am a Choreographer, Singer, Songwriter, and Actor based in NYC. I am a recent graduate from Otterbein University, with a BFA in Musical Theater and a Concentration in Dance. I am very excited and eager to start working as an artist in this beautiful city.
When I am not acting I enjoy choreography, songwriting, playing around on synthesizers and piano, as well as teaching fitness classes.I have a huge passion for music, and am rarely ever seen without headphones in my ears as I am constantly catching up on the latest releases from up and coming pop-artists. Check out the link to my personal spotify account and follow my playlist "The Net" for some inspirational and fresh tunes.
I perform my own music under the name COOKS, and am currently working on my own EP. Be sure to look out for it this year! Stylistically my music falls under the category of indie-pop electronica.
Some quirks of my daily life:
My favorite animal is the Octopus. I am really into anime, manga, and otaku culture. I enjoy doing makeup and wearing crazy colored lipstick around the house. I perform in drag as "Shiiza Meijaho." Chinese food is my absolute favorite and one day it will come back to bite me, but let's enjoy it for now...My favorite movie is Funny Girl (very musical theatre dork of me, but it's Barbra...I can't resist). I am a huge gaming nerd and I specialize in fighting games as well as Japanese role playing games. My favorite book is Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte. Currently my favorite album is Versions by Zola Jesus.
