What music and theatre projects are you working on right now or have recently completed?
I'm looking forward to rehearsal for ISU's production of She Kills Monsters! I just performed as The Storyteller in the Children's Matinee performance of The Nutcracker, which was so much fun! I also directed a play for the Ten-Minute Play Festival. 

Why did you choose the Department of Music and Theatre at ISU?
I wanted a well-rounded theatre education. Our music and theatre professors are the best of the best and they truly believe in you!

What are your plans after graduation?
I plan to move to Des Moines after graduation with my girlfriend to pursue theatre! And eventually maybe move to Chicago.

Any words of wisdom for prospective students?
My advice to prospective students (and to myself) is to never stop believing in yourself, even when you are faced with rejection. Confidence is key. If you truly have a passion for what you do, nothing should stop you from putting yourself out there and going for it! The future is limitless.
