Being from a family where your father has worked in the oil field you tend to move around a lot due to transfers.

After stage managing a musical for theatre I had realized that, that was my niche and I really enjoyed the challenge of being a stage manager. Ever since then I have been dead set on maybe even one day directing a play myself. I love to learn new things and make memories with all the new people I meet at the clubs and extracurricular
