Suzanne always knew she was different from the other kids. She somehow perceived that she felt things more acutely--both the beauty and the pain in the world. When, in grade school she discovered music and theatre, she found a way to channel her sensitivity into something dynamic and valuable. To her great joy, she carried her “old soul” into adulthood, and expresses her vulnerability, love, and empathy through her singing to all who listen.
Suzanne’s ideal, albeit sensitive, childhood began in Racine, Wisconsin. When her mother began taking piano lessons for fun, Suzanne, at age 6, announced that she, too, wanted to play. Soon after, she knew that she had discovered the medium through which she could shine. Soon after, she began acting in school plays and community theatre. Suzanne continued playing piano for her own enjoyment but discovered that vocally, she could combine her love of music and acting.
She went on to earn her BFA in Musical Theatre from Syracuse University. In 2002, she moved to New York where she worked with ArtsTrust on A Day in Hollywood, A Night in the Ukraine. Then life presented an opportunity to move to the West coast, and having only experienced extreme weather (Wisconsin...Syracuse...New York City), she jumped at the chance of beaches, palm trees...and Hollywood.
In Los Angeles, she has worked in many of the area’s premiere theatres, including South Coast Repertory, A Noise Within, Laguna Playhouse, and the Theatre at Boston Court. She also works in commercials, print, and film.
Directed by the esteemed Calvin Remsberg, she performed a self-written and produced club act, Speak Low at the Catalina Bar and Grill, to rave reviews. Thus began her affinity for concert performance and the creation of A Sun-Up Sky. Suzanne hopes to use the receptiveness that she has carried throughout her life to create beautiful stories of love, hope, loss, and awakening to which all who listen can intuitively relate.
