My love of theatre began when I was a small child seeing Dinosaur Days at the Valley Forge Music Fair (which sadly closed in 1996). I was too shy to talk to my teachers in preschool, but I loved pretending to be dinosaurs under tables with my friends. Although I had no idea at the time, seeing Greg Wood play Hamlet at the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival in the summer of my twelfth year would change the course of my life.
