My first public performance was on the balcony of my grandparents' home in Istanbul, Turkey at age two (see adorable gif, if I do say so myself). My family relocated to Seattle, Washington, where I grew to be a proud coffee addict. Seattle is also home to the Seattle Children’s Theatre, where I took drama classes and performed for sixteen years beginning at age three.
I am passionate about performing Shakespeare, Sondheim, gigantic silly children's theatre characters, and tap dancing.
Outside of theatre, I enjoy running marathons and am a professional RRCA certified running coach. I love Harry Potter, Star Wars, and listening to social justice and political podcasts on 2x speed (there are just too many good ones to get through!).
