LOOKING FOR A CREATIVE SPARK?
That's where I come in!
Still trying to
FIGURE OUT WHAT I'M DOING,
I literally don't think I ever knew what I wanted to do, I just knew that it needed to be something creative, something imaginative, and something I could fully put my heart into. And those criteria lead me all over the place.
First, that love and passion would put me on the back of a horse. I guess many would deduce that though after I state that I was raised on a horse farm just outside of Green Bay, Wisconsin. I will say that the decade of formative years I spent training as an equestrian show jumper in my youth really instilled in me so many attributes which I display today. Hardworking, empathy, drive, commitment, and so many more. Which ultimately motivated me all the way to New York City to pursue my other calling, Musical Theatre.
I landed in NYC for the first time in October of 2012, on move-in day at the American Musical and Dramatic Academy (AMDA), my home for the next two years. And it's one of those memories I can remember so clearly because of its definitive impact on my future.
The years I spent attending AMDA shaped me into a person that high school me wouldn't have even recognized. But the growth absolutely did not stop there.
When I graduated I headed back to Wisconsin unsure where life's journey would take me. I spent the next few years performing, directing, choreographing around the state, and working full-time as a co-manager in retail.
It was a BUSY few years of running from rehearsals to work, back and forth. But, they were good years.
I brought to life some once-in-a-lifetime roles and productions, met my husband, adopted some cats, and enjoyed the midwest lifestyle.
I just knew it wasn't where my story "ended."And once my husband and I married, in the year 2020...in the midst of COVID, we moved out of our apartment and set our sights on Denver, CO!
This brings us to pretty much the present day. Where I spend my days working as a semi-full-time content creator and at night work as a musical theatre educator, specializing in dance and choreography. It's honestly the best of both worlds!
So, how did I land here making this site to help bring inspiration to creators in the social media space?! A great question.
During COVID, I was sincerely MISSING my creative life as any theatre was virtually paused for a few years. I was already creating content for my Instagram, which up until this point was primarily promoting my musical theatre aspirations, and I truly just let the world of content creation take hold of me.
And now, two years or so after I took my first steps down the creator path I am so motivated by bringing to life, well, life and sharing all that life with each other. That's why I not only find so much joy in working with brands that believe in life, but also with other artistic individuals who help brighten the world.
And who knows where this chapter will lead me? But I'm more excited than ever to figure it out.
