This website is meant to be an all-encompassing representation of my process, education, and experience working on this production of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. It is meant to showcase the work I put into my characters and how I grew throughout the process, both as an actor and as a person. To me, theatre is as much visual and tangible as it is performative and imaginary, and I hope that you will find this to be showcased here. You may find quotes from the rehearsal room, various pictures, mood boards, and other visual representations of my experience sprinkled throughout this website. As much as I am an actor, I am a visual artist as well, and I felt that this was the most meaningful way to approach my senior project in performance: putting thoughts into both words and images. I want this to be a visual journey as much as it is an experiential one. I want to approach this as an artist would.
