Me with my microphone in my basement venue. 

Hello! Welcome to my site! I'm thrilled you're here. I am Merrill, and I'm not one for talking in lengths about myself, so I'll keep this introduction brief.

A baby of the 80’s, I was born in Waukesha, Wisconsin. As a child, all I knew of theatre was through watching Disney movies on television, but I always had my pretend microphone and basement as a venue, as if I knew I was destined for the stage. I put on frequent shows. (Mostly with ‘The Bodyguard’ soundtrack in the background.)

My family moved to Portsmouth, New Hampshire when I was 12, and a few years later (and several failed attempts to be on sports teams) I found my niche! High school drama club. 

The rest is history, as they say, and although my journey has been anything but predictable or easy, I'm happy to be able to share my highlights with you on this site. As I strive to become a better person and performer, I find there is no key to success, just the right frame of mind.
