What to Expect
You should expect to be entertained, engaged, and amused. Whether your goal is to make sure your guests have an excellent time at your event or you're looking to intrigue new and potential clients- my interpersonal skills are sure to impress.
I have a BFA in Theater arts with over 10 years of training in a long & short form improvisation. I first came to Philadelphia as an Audience Service Apprentice at the Walnut Street Theater. During my time here I was responsible for assisting our house-manager with the 1100 seat theater. My duties included greeting VIP patrons, handling emergencies throughout the show, and training volunteer ushers. If you need some extra hands on help or a smiling face at your gala or charity event, I am more than prepared to provide comfortable atmosphere for your guests.
In addition to my time at the Walnut I have been teaching and performing Children's Theater for over 5 years. I have written my own curriculum for camps across the city and surrounding suburbs. I currently perform with an interactive troupe called Story Up! If your child is having a birthday party I can plan 1-3 hours worth of games and activities. Unlike a traditional entertainer, my programs are interactive and enriching. Children will be encouraged to create and imagine.
I can also provide product demonstration and modeling. I have worked in a variety of sales and marketing roles where I was required to approach completed strangers on the street and try to engage them (Jewelry, Cash for Gold, Food and Culinary). If you are looking to pull customers in and create an environment where they can interact with your product I can accomplish this. In previous roles I have interacted with potential clients in very public settings, like the mall or park.
Throwing a gathering and worried that your guests won't loosen up and dance? With over 10 years of training in tap, jazz, and ballet... not to mention an extreme love cutting a rug- I can make any dance floor come to life.
