A little about me.
Hey there! Thanks for joining me in my own little corner on the internet! My name is Alyssa (she/her). I was born and raised in a small town in Ohio, but I moved to Philadelphia 7 years ago, where I also graduated from The University of the Arts with a BFA in Musical Theatre.
My favorite thing about performing is the child-like quality of being able to "play." I love letting go, living in the moment and breathing into the fun of just being able to do this crazy job that I can't get enough of, while also getting to tell stories that need to be told. I'm a total dork and absolutely geek out about classical musical theater since that's where my love for performing started, however there is also something about contemporary screen acting that really turns my creative juices on. I like to think I bring a good mix of classical training, weirdo energy and brassy grit to every process I'm a part of.
Another thing I bring to all the work I do is an immense amount of compassion & drive. I decided at a young age to reject society's expectations put on young creative thinkers to get a "real job." Instead, I strive to be a role model for kids from all walks of life who dream of never working a 9-to-5 and I want to inspire young kids that you can be your own boss and live a fulfilling life doing what you LOVE!
In my spare time, I enjoy trying out new recipes in the kitchen, singing operettas in the shower and annoying my family and friends with text messages the length of novels.
