Hi there! I'm Sarah and I'm currently in my third and final year of graduate school at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco.

I was born and raised in Chicago where I was fortunate enough to be exposed to some extraordinary work at theaters like Steppenwolf, The Goodman, and Second City.  In my senior year of high school, I saw the original production of Pam MacKinnon's "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf", and was inspired to pursue acting as a profession.

In 2015, I graduated with a B.A. in Drama and Psychology from Vassar College. During my time in undergrad, I also studied at the British American Drama Academy's Midsummer in Oxford program and was opened to the magic of Shakespeare.

In my two years post-undergrad, I lived in New York City and  started to learn the ropes of the industry.  I mostly worked in commercials, performed at Off-Off Broadway theaters like La MaMa, and collaborated on new works. After these two years, I realized I had a thirst to deepen my artistic training and was absolutely honored to be accepted to A.C.T's Master of Fine Arts Program.

I've come to learn that  I'm particularly passionate about being in and creating original work surrounding queer narratives.  I'm excited to see what avenues I take after I graduate this spring and am open to the many journeys this career will take me on.
