You have to pay your own electric bill. You have to be kind. You have to give it all you got. You have to find people who love you truly and love them back with the same truth. That’s all.
— 'Tiny Beautiful Things' by Cheryl Strayed

about me

Hi, I am Mackenzie.

I'm a CHICAGO gal (city proper) born and bred, based in NYC. I am a Blonde-Jewish(yes, I promise)-City Girl-who spent weekends on her grandparent's farm. So, as Hannah Montana says, "I got the best of both worlds." 

I absolutely adore my family. My father grew up on the farm in Indiana and thinks he's Liam Neeson. My mother was a professional dancer and wishes my dad was Liam Neeson. I have one younger sister going all out for a masters in Art Therapy; forced to watch "Taken" starring, you guessed it...too many times. I can't even count how many times I've seen it. Great film. 

Humans are weird, the world is weird, and being an artist gives me a chance to explore pieces of existence that, maybe, I'll never get to experience. 

I am an avid reader and Netflix binger, yogi, kickboxer, weightlifter, caregiver, creature lover, adventurous foodie, outdoor concert goer, Halloween enthusiast*, storyteller, listener...

*Example: in 3rd grade I was Cousin It. (costume: handmade by me.) The picture below is kept on my desktop. The confidence I had as an 8 year-old is inspiring. I look like a rockstar. 

Next Up:

I'll be playing Becca in RABBIT HOLE and Heather Chandler in HEATHER'S: THE MUSICAL with Clear Space Theatre Company
