Zoe's (she/they) favorite stories are the freaky ones, the funny ones, the ones that move us to take better care of the environment, ourselves, and each other. They're most excited about collaborating with other emerging artists to create new stories and amplify those that have been ignored in the past.

Originally from Baltimore, MD, Zoe currently lives in Philadelphia  and graduated from the University of the Arts, with a BFA in Acting and the Dean's Award for Outstanding Performance by an Acting Major.

Recently, she has performed in Philadelphia, Prague, and Edinburgh Fringe Festivals, with the Wilma Hothouse Company in Romeo and Juliet and trained in the HotHouse Method with Blanka Zizka. The HotHouse Method and their training in clown and comedy have imbued their work with honesty, impulsivity, and joy.

Their storytelling extends to filmmaking and mixed-media collage; something is constantly in the works.

Zoe is proud to be an Equity Membership Candidate, working towards joining the union.

Inspired by my aunt,

and in response to these truly absurd times we're living in, 

I make collages that unify disparate themes:

technological and organic,

antique and modern,

humorous and sobering.

new and exciting!
