As a lifelong Santa Cruzian who somehow doesn’t surf, Anne has always known how to follow her own path. She’s the child of a burn nurse and a chemistry professor, so pursuing any kind of theatre came as a surprise to them. After spending much of her life in her Synagogue teaching prayers and bouncing between countless theatre rehearsals, community came to feed her artistic flame. Art has always made Anne feel seen, especially as a young, queer Jew. Finding those special spaces where she can embrace her nerdy and shy self have brought her so much inner peace. As a proud mental health advocate, particularly around OCD, all she can hope is to continue the chain of creating safe spaces for introspection through her writing, directing, singing, and performing.
