world premiere at goodspeed opera house

Being a part of this joyous show was an absolute delight. I had the pleasure of performing in the ensemble and understudying Jane (Danielle Wade). We danced, we flipped, we sang jazz harmonies, we cheered on Corbin Bleu as he tapped on kitchen tables. As the New York Times said, "who could ask for anything more?"

Check out what I was up to while theatre was shutdown!

During the pandemic, my employment was unusual (even by show biz standards), but I was able to learn and grow in different areas of my life that will only enhance my skills as a performer. 

The Mystery of Edwin Drood

below is the trailer, but we made the whole show!

The Drowsy Chaperone

musicals go virtual

Associate Choreographer -

Manhattan School of Music

Over the pandemic, I was fortunate enough to work on not one, but two, virtual productions as Associate Choreographer at Manhattan School of Music. Under the brave direction of Liza Gennaro (choreographer), Evan Pappas (director), David Loud (music director), and Super Awesome Friends (video production), we created hybrid socially distant/virtual productions of Drood and The Drowsy Chaperone for audiences to enjoy digitally.

A few scenes were filmed in masks outdoors, but most of the rehearsals and filming happened via zoom with the students running their own sound, video, and lights with our direction through the computer screen.  

Along with the usual associate job description, I ended up taking on more responsibility and learning new skills in this process. I created storyboards to illustrate the choreography and visuals to be seen on screen for each number. Then made a shotlist with all the info needed to execute each shot for each performer to make the storyboard happen. I was involved in the editing process post-production and helped with scheduling. All via zoom!


It was incredibly difficult, but I am so proud of what we accomplished

Em's embroidery and more

hobby turned small business

I've always had a love for making crafty things. A few years ago I picked up embroidery and have been thinking of turning it into an online business ever since. I finally found the time last summer to make that dream a reality! 

It's still very small, but I loved having so many projects to do over the last year to keep me busy and creative.

Check it out on instagram @ems_embroidery.more to see my embroidered goods, with a focus on upcycling and crafting sustainably.
