What do you like about Mustard Lane or just working events in general?
Mustard Lane in particular the most fun and warm event company I’ve ever had the pleasure of working for. I love being able to be around people because every interaction you share has it’s own special something even if it’s just for a moment.
When you’re not on the Lane…what are you doing?!
What aren’t I doing? I love watching horror movies, listening to Broadway cast recordings (shoutout to Great Comet), singing, and performing on stage.
Favorite restaurant or food?
The Doughnut Project!
What is one of your goals for 2022?
Meet Chris Evans (and his dog)
Name a place you’d love to travel to. And why?!
Paris! I went earlier this year and it’s one of the only places I’ve traveled to I would actually want to live.
What’s your favorite way to spend a day off?
If I’m solo, give me my bed, my tv, and a pizza and I’m good to go. If I’m with friends, I love going to escape rooms!
Do you prefer podcasts or books? Favorite one?
More recent years lean toward podcasts. My favorite is Rotten Mango.
What’s your hidden talent?!

I already have my dream job(s) but I would narrow it down to actor!

Applying my Vitamin C serum to my face.
