If you've made it to this page of my site, you might be thinking, wow, this queen does too many things. Rest assured, this side of Kleist is the one side I've been honing in on for decades. Welcome in. :)

Deadpan sense of humor + pop/rock vocal chops + the feminine urge to rebel.

favorite collaborators

I am inspired by contemporary storytelling and new work. Whether it's an old tale told in a new, innovative way, or a narrative that looks, feels, and sounds more modern, I believe that the way to reach today's audiences is to bring them characters they can relate to from composers who are influenced by the now. 

Favorite shows I've worked on include WPPAC's regional premier of Heathers (u/s Veronica), the star-studded, 90's punk rock show Little Black Book, and Jeff Daye's Cleopatra, a queer EDM retelling.

In addition to acting, I track a lot of studio vocals for various composers, lyricists, and singer-songwriters. If you are producing songs, demos, sweeteners, or other tracked vocals, I would love to work with you!

Here are a few of the albums you can hear me on:

Little Black Book starring Jessica Vosk, Orfeh, Lilias White, Mandy Gonzales, Natalie Weiss, and more.
I Put A Spell On You starring Jay Armstrong Johnson, Todrick Hall, Eva Noblezada, Will Swenson and more.
Discount Ghost Stories by Alex Sage Oyen

And countless other recordings and tracks. Email me to work! 

We all need a passion project—turning Broadway hits into pop anthems is mine. With the help of my partner (and music producer), Lloyd Kikoler, we've turned a few iconic Broadway songs into fully produced hits for Instagram and TikTok.
