About Claire

I grew up in a small town right outside of Philadelphia so naturally, I love a good cheesesteak and am am known for being an avid Eagles fan. Being from Philly, I was exposed to some incredible theatre and music from a young age, which ultimately was the catalyst for my passion for the arts.

My love of music began when I started piano lessons at age 4. I continued for about 12 years, so it's safe to say that music is a huge part of my life. I went on to learn a multitude of other instruments such as guitar, saxophone, and even the good old plastic recorder. This love of music ultimately lead me into the theatre world, landing me my debut role at age 7 as Little Cosette in my local high school's production of Les Miserables. Since then, I've been hooked. 

This past year, I graduated from the Boston Conservatory at Berklee, receiving my BFA in Musical Theatre (with an emphasis in Songwriting) as well as my minor in Psychology. While there, I was the proud director of Conservatory Cabaret, a 10 person community outreach group who performs a cabaret style set of music for local nursing homes, soup kitchens, and shelters around the city. I learned a lot about myself and my passions while there and ultimately will take them with me into the professional realm. 

While not performing, I dabble in the world of photography, video editing, and visual art. You can also find me cooking a new recipe or writing new music. Now living New York City, my goal is to continue to make art in any way I can and bring my genuine and witty nature to every project.
