In my late 20s I discovered burlesque, rediscovered drag, and started taking classes with anyone and everyone who would take time to teach me or work with me. I’ve been involved with the Boston performance community for the last three years and have also been fortunate enough to perform in other cities around the country. I occassionally work with and direct actors as part of my “muggle” job and have been fortunate enough to have great mentors and talent to learn from there as well. My goal when I’m on stage is to entertain but also unsettle.

How do you feel about changing technologies and increased nostalgia for things from childhood?
I have interesting feelings about nostalgia.
Rotary phones all day – they are much more fun (and easier) to dismantle.
I thought long and hard about this, and while I love Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep, there’s not really a sheep character so I’ll have to go with the lamb “having ten horns and seven eyes” from Revelations because that is one mega powerful scary sheep. Wait, has JCVD ever done a scene with a sheep? Because that sheep would be my favorite.
