Well, hello there.
My name is Danae, and 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 Tulsa to 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. It's in Kansas where 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 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.
In my "other life," I'm an established marketing and communications professional with experience in public relations, social media management, graphic design, the non-profit industry, arts & culture, tourism marketing, magazine journalism, and online blogosphere. I do, as they say, wear many hats! Learn more about that here.
