Teaching with my husband, Douglas Seldin, in the Stage Combat Common Class, 2017.

Hiya!  Nice to meet you!  Most of the time, I am based in Western Massachusetts, but at the moment, I'm living in London, England, taking classes, exploring the city, and learning as much as I can about as much as I can.

 

I graduated from Skidmore College in 2013 with a Bachelor of Science (cum laude) in Theater, with additional interests in Religious Studies and Genetics.  Since undergrad, I’ve become a company member at Shakespeare & Company, working as a resident actor, director, and teaching artist.  For fun, I love baking, writing, reading, running, CrossFit, board games, learning, and crafting.  I’ve been barred from knitting: it stresses me out, which stresses my husband out; which stresses me out, lather, rinse, repeat.

The most exciting news I have to share is that I've just recently earned my Masters of Fine Arts degree in Acting.  I graduated from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, part of Birmingham City University, and I did so with a distinction.  My program wrapped up immediately following our MFA production of We Are Three Sisters, written by Blake Morrison, in which I got to play as Emily Brontë.  Before spending five weeks in Haworth, we closed John Webster's The White Devil, in which I got to spend five weeks playing the prodigal Count Lodovico. Before that, I played Jennifer in Sarah Daniels' Masterpieces, and before that still, my MFA cohort produced our own showcase, filmed and compiled in a neat PDF package and in an exclusive website.  To request access, please visit my contact page, and get in touch!

I feel quite lucky to be able to say that my work as a theater artist is as present offstage as it is on: I am so proud to share with you tales from my times as a director and as a teaching artist.  Two summers ago, before embarking on my MFA adventure in England, I developed and ran Shakespeare & Company's newest summer program, Riotous Youth Extended Days, where Riotous Youth participants were offered the option to spend an additional two hours a day exploring the wider theatrical world.  The preceding autumn, I co-directed Hamlet at Taconic High School, as part of Shakespeare & Company's 30th annual Fall Festival of Shakespeare: my fifth year directing and teaching in the program.  

Gotta say, though: my proudest artistic accomplishment to date is my marriage to my wonderful best friend, partner, and husband, Douglas Seldin, a fellow actor, director, education artist, and more.
