I consider myself a classically trained actor with a penchant for performing elevated text. A student of David Mamet, I'm part of a Western lineage that dates back to Ancient Greece. As such, I'm very good at playing stereotypically black characters.
Here I am playing a sex worker with a dark past in Guirgis' Den of Thieves.
Did you know there were black maids in Russia? Here I am playing the maid in Tom Stoppard's translation of The Seagull.
Playing an actual minstrel in a production of Rumplestiltskin.
Another black maid in a production of The Miracle Worker. At one point the director insinuated that my performance was too black, and asked me to tone it down.
