"HOW DID I GET HERE?"

A desert baby born and raised in the Arizona sun, Jen was singing long before speaking thanks to their parents, who gifted them a love of music and performance. The acting bug bit hard at the age of 6, when they were cast as a lamb in the Christmas pageant and realized that on stage you could be anything. 

Jen received a Bachelor of Music from Arizona State University and made their way to NYC. They have performed all over the city, country and world, in everything from rock concerts, healing rituals, web series and art installations to plays, operas, films and musicals.. Favorites include Tamar of the River, Angels, Zapata! The Musical, Lilleth Glimcher’s You There and Casa Blue: The Last Moments in the Life of Frida Kahlo. Being on set of short films such as Martin Bowsfield and in web series like Making It, Mythos and How To Make It To 30 has also rocked their world. Jen's #1 goal is to do work that moves and inspires and tells the stories of those who have been ignored for too long. 

You will occasionally find them jamming out on their cello with various friends' bands, helping humans bring tiny humans into the world as a doula, singing to babies in Spanish with Mi Manzana, recording and directing voice overs and other fun things, doing energy and intuitive healing work, practicing guitar, writing stories and silly songs and making magic with Marisa Michelson's Constellation Chor Ensemble.
