November 2012

Hometown: The good ol' Davenport, Iowa

Major(s)/Minor(s): I am double majoring is Speech/Theatre Education and Music Education.

Age started theatre: I started Theatre my sophomore year in high school, so 15 or 16, I think.

Dream role & why: I've had the luck of already playing my dream role which was Wickersham Brother #1 in Seussical the Musical, that show was awesome, Who doesn't like being a monkey? The cast was great, and I got to sing really high, which I don't get to do often because I'm a bass 2 (sad face).

Productions I've been involved in: Blithe Spirit; Almost, Maine; Anything Goes; Seussical; Little Women; Alice; Jack and The Giant; All Shook Up

Latest project: My latest project is balancing school, life, and two student directed one-acts.

Why I chose SAU: I chose St. Ambrose because it is a nice campus, people seemed friendly, it offered my specific major, and it had a ping-pong table!!!!!

If I could have any job in the world: If I could have any job in the world I would want to teach speech/theatre at my former high school: Davenport North.

What inspires me the most: People! Helen Brennen and Ryan Riewerts, throughout my high school career these two extraordinary teachers always expected more out of me, made sure I was doing all of my school work, and actually made me see that I could go to college. For that I am eternally grateful!

Where I see myself in 5 years: In 5 years I can see myself either teaching in a high school, or still in college; either way it's going to be awesome.
