Hi there, I'm Jo! I am a singer and actress originally from Kansas, now based in New York City!
I first discovered my love of theatre at age 12, while playing a made up Pink Lady named "Brainy" in Grease. I was instantly hooked and spent many summers performing at Starlight Theatre and The Kauffman Performing Arts Center. After high school, I moved to New York City to attend the Musical Theatre Program at Manhattan School of Music. I graduated during the pandemic, and have since been auditioning, working as a teaching artist, and creating my own work.
I consider myself an actor for the underdogs and misunderstood characters. I take pride in my strength and vulnerability as a woman and bring that to every role I tackle. I am a mezzo with a strong belt who loves to sing everything from classical musical theatre to pop rock and country.
When I'm not performing I love spending time riding my citi bike, playing soccer, nannying kids, and watching the sunset over Riverside Park.
