What do you love about the Lane?

I love the reliability. I love the people. It all stems from the culture that was created by Kristal from the beginning. Her awesomeness trickles down, and that says a lot.

What do you do outside the Lane?

I'm an actor, producer, writer. I help run a livestream studio in Brooklyn called Brooklyn Quarter with my boyfriend and some other super creative humans. We livestream Dungeons & Dragons on a weekly basis and produce other content like web series, talk shows, and podcasts. I also do voice over and commercial acting quite often, and my number one passion is acting on stage. The theatre is my first love.
