Hey, you! Yeah, you.
Thanks for visiting.
I'm Danae! I'm a director, actor, singer, and dancer based... wherever I'm working. I'm always on the move, and I love it that way.
I didn't exactly live a normal childhood. Before the age of 10, I had lived on four different continents: we moved from Chicago to Sharjah, UAE (near Dubai) to Malta (in the Mediterranean) back to the states (Houston, TX), then to Bogota, Colombia.
Unfortunately the Arabic or Spanish didn't stick.
We finally settled in a suburb of Kansas City - the Kansas side. It's there that I really found my place on the stage. I performed summers at The Theatre in the Park (one of the largest outdoor community theaters in the country) in shows like Grease!, West Side Story, The Sound of Music, Thoroughly Modern Millie, and CATS.
Then, I spent 8.5 years in Southwest Florida, where I had the pleasure of working with many talented directors, designers, and actors throughout Florida, as well as several companies around the country. View my resume for a list of credits.
I haven't always been an artist first. I graduated from the University of Kansas with a degree in Magazine Journalism, and then found a flourishing career in Marketing, Public Relations, and Social Media. I have extensive experience in arts marketing, arts management, public relations, social media management, graphic design, the non-profit industry, arts & culture, tourism marketing, magazines, and online blogosphere. I do, as they say, wear many hats! Learn more about that here.
If you want the full story on how I made the full-time career switch from marketing to gypsy-artist-actor-director-extraordinaire, we can grab beers from a local brewery and chat.
