MEET
MARIAH

I was raised in a small town in Minnesota (we’re talking 2,000 people small) where I grew up letting my imagination run wild through 30-acres of beautiful farmland.

I fell in love with performing at the age of 6 as I belted out “How Much is that Doggie in the Window” at a local talent show. True story. I was the only child in the lineup of performers, and if that wasn’t enough to make me stand out, wearing my mom’s blush and red lipstick for the first time helped me step into my small, but mighty star power!

My first few performance experiences in our tiny town energized me, and I eventually graduated to competing in (and winning!) State Fair vocal competition, Speech competitions, playing leads at the local community theatres, and earned my gold award in Girl Scouts directing Middle School Choir.

With each new artistic endeavor, my passion grew and my love of the craft exploded. It wasn’t long before there was no turning back - I knew I wanted to make a career as a performing artist. 

After graduating with my BFA in Musical Theatre from Ithaca College, I moved to NY and have performed regionally (The Marvelous Wonderettes, Spelling Bee, Little Shop of Horrors) and in National tours (The Lightning Thief, Babes in Toyland and Beauty and The Beast). Most recently, I sailed the international seas as a Lead Vocalist for AIDA Cruise Lines.

More passionate and powerful women to play,
Endless curious collaborations to seek out, 
And meaningful connections to be made through the stories we tell. 

SO WHAT'S UP NEXT?

Can’t help but recommend books like...

Gifts of Imperfection, The Alchemist, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, The 4 Agreements

My perfect Sunday:

Exploring the hidden gems of nature in NYC, crafting our families homemade meatballs with ravioli, and cuddling up to watch Love Actually before bed with a glass of red wine and a Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup in hand :)

Admires the work of women like:

Lit up when doing things like:

Photography, pastel painting, devouring a new book, travel, and sipping hot coffee with a splash of cream.
