[ about me ! ]

I was born and raised in Orange County, California, yet I've only managed to stand on a surfboard about twice. Performing arts have been my passion ever since I announced my "retirement" from a flourishing softball career in 5th grade.

Other hobbies include rollerskating with my younger brother, telling my dogs how cute they are, driving around with friends, pilates, watching "Community", organizing stuff, finding cats to pat, bopping to restaurant music, and sending smiley faces :).

Could not be more grateful and elated to take on Kira/Clio in this wonderfully ridiculous show. 

Skating around as a blonde to a sold out crowd, this was the perfect way to start the summer. HUGE thank yous to Tent Theatre, and to the whole company for an unforgettable experience.

Claire is so excited to be starting her musical theatre training at Missouri State University, as a BFA Musical Theatre major!

Amidst a pandemic, the arts go on (safely of course:) 

Springfield here she comes!

Dear Daddy,
| Daddy Long Legs

Claire has had the wonderful opportunity to direct and star in Daddy Long Legs, a two-person musical about trust, communication, and, of course, love. She, playing Jerusha Abbott is joined onstage by lifelong friend Karson Bollinger, who plays Jervis.

The production ran January 31- February 1, 2020 at the Yorba Linda High School Forum Theater.

She had a blast and learned a LOT from this experience!

The Big Apple
| Broadway Artists Alliance 2019

Thanks to the John Raitt Awards for Youth, Claire got the opportunity of a lifetime to go to NYC for a musical theatre intensive ending in an industry showcase for various casting directors, agents, managers, and more. Throughout the week, she learned more than she ever has from people like Susan Blackwell, Bob Cline, Michael Riccardone, and Randy Graff just to name a few. The students who attended Broadway Artists Alliance were enormously talented, but even more than that, so genuinely kind and supportive of one another. Claire cannot express enough thanks to the JRAYs for her remarkable experience.

In April of 2019, Claire got the incredible opportunity to play one of her favorite roles in one of her favorite shows: Janet Van de Graaff in "The Drowsy Chaperone!"
