Why theater?: There's something very special about creating a connection with a live audience. Nothing beats it.

Tell us about Sex Witch the Musical: Sex Witch The Musical is a solo musical comedy show about my time in a teen witch sex cult. 

What inspired you to write Sex Witch the Musical?: I wanted to tell my story. I've been performing comedy for a while, so I decided to write a kooky, funny musical about my creepy teen witchery. 

What kind of theater speaks to you? What or who inspires you as an artist?: I like hilarious, vulnerable storytelling. I look up to Jessica Kirson, Mike Birbiglia and Chris Gethard. 

If you could work with anyone you’ve yet to work with, who would it be?: Ilana Glazer. 

What show have you recommended to your friends?: Solo, A Show About Friendship, by Gabe Mollica. 

Who would play you in a movie about yourself and what would it be called?: "Sex Witch, The Movie", of course. I'm gonna go with Jessica Chastain, because why not? 

If you could go back in time and see any play or musical you missed, what would it be?:  I wish I could've seen Carol Burnett in Once Upon a Mattress

What’s your biggest guilty pleasure?: Martha's country bakery Nutella Cheesecake

If you weren’t working in theater, you would be _____?: An interior designer. I love decorating apartments!
