Writing has been a passion of mine since I was a kid. I used to fill notebooks upon notebooks with stories, short plays, questionable poetry,
Phantom of the Opera fanfiction, comedy writing––you name it. I still love to write, and once in a while, I’m lucky enough to do it for fantastic outlets like the ones credited below.
- I interviewed award-winning playwright Lauren Yee, Signature Theatre Company Artistic Director Paige Evans, and Victoria Lang of Broadway & Beyond Theatricals about the upcoming tour of Cambodian Rock Band, the show’s celebration of Asian artistry in times of turmoil, and the importance of seeing Asian and Asian American experiences onstage.
- In December of 2019, I attended my first out-of-town press junket in New Orleans for the brand-new FOX drama Filthy Rich, starring Kim Cattrall, Steve Harris, Corey Cott, Melia Kreiling, Aaron Lazar, and more. I got to interview the cast, showrunner Abe Sylvia, and the show’s creator Tate Taylor about what made the Southern Gothic family drama so alluring.
- I co-write weekly Broadway-themed horoscopes with my boss (Playbill’s illustrious Director of Social Media and Creative Strategy Felicia Fitzpatrick). A few of my favorite #BwayAstro columns have been inspired by the Mamma Mia! Cinematic Universe, LGBTQ+ theatre, Shakespeare, and the iconic Audra McDonald.
