I was told it's more professional to write these in the third-person, but Dakota thinks that's boring...
I once saw a banana peel in the street, and instinctively swerved to avoid it. Thanks Mario Kart™️.
When I was 5, I escaped from a straight-jacket three separate times in the same hospital visit. My mom thought I was going to be a magician at that moment, but I looked up at her and cried "magic isn't real!" and disappeared into a cloud of smoke.
I've been acting from a very young age. I convinced my parents that my brother did a lot of bad things that were actually me. For my brother - "If you see this, I'm so sorry. PLEASE RESPOND TO MY TEXTS!"
When I was 11, I ran away from home. I got about a quarter of a mile down the road when I became cold, turned around and took a nap in our camper. My mom came and woke me up saying "When you're done running away, dinner is ready."
"You know, I thought I knew everything about you. But you're a mystery. Wrapped in a riddle. Surrounded by enigma..." (- Will & Grace) is a solid statement I identify with.
I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a BFA in Musical Theatre from the Hartt School of Music Dance and Theatre. I will 100% brag about the 'Summa' part - I worked hard for that.
Some of my favorite roles include Cliff in Cabaret, Emmett in Legally Blonde, Evelyn in Anything Goes, Sir Bedevere in Spamalot, and Bobby Strong in Urinetown. I also had the wonderful opportunity to play Shawn in the first U.S. production of Once We Lived Here, which I also assisted in adapting the script for U.S. based audiences.
P.S. There is one thing about NYC that has absolutely baffled me... Is it normal to have only seen one regular-sized cockroach so far? I feel like they're building up numbers to appear as a mound around a corner one day. Update: Moved to Astoria, and every now and again there's a regular sized cockroach that scuttles across my living room floor. All is right with the world.
