WHO. Is. anděl?!
She is a
Human artist who mostly resides in the areas of improvisation, theater and writing.
Her Goal* is
To create art that connects, entertains, and provokes thought.
To empower artists to play with and discover their voice.
Not “Find" your voice but strip away the ones that you've tried on and the ones that have covered and protected you. To perhaps offer a few new ones she things are fun while also zeroing in and focusing on what you’re already bringing. Because it’s what no one else can.
No big Thang.
She performs, teaches and thinks about improv a lot. When she’s not doing that she’s reading, walking or sweating. Sometimes all three at once.
Take a look around the site. You’ll find: what’s coming up, what’s in the past and what she thinks she can offer you(plus some bits and bobs she thinks are fun.) Let her know what you like and what you want more of.

“Give what you have. To someone else it may be better than you dare to think”
— Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I offer experiential teaching based on 21 years of professional practice and a WHOLE LOTTA fucking up. I have steadily worked as an improviser, sketch performer/writer, teacher and director for 19 years as a part of large organizations and corporations, small theater companies, communities and independently. I do not offer business advice or promise to get you a job. There are other people who are very good at that. Please put me in touch with them. What I do is play and work with process and person-ality so hopefully when you DO get the job you know yourself and your process well enough to be able to adapt while remaining steadfast in your values.
There’s power in light accountability.
Inquire about one off, weekend, weeklong workshops or intensives, residencies or performances. I also offer one on one coaching, editing and writing classes online. If you have an idea-we'll figure out how.
