After earning a BFA in Violin Perfomance, Vanessa decided to move behind the scenes and began a career in stage management. She has been working for the past five years as a freelance stage manager for opera and dance productions all over the country. In addition to the arts, traveling the world, and watching an absurd amount of 30 Rock, Vanessa has recently unearthed another passion and chapter in her creative life - writing. She is excited to see where this new venture may take her. Vanessa currently resides in Milwaukee, WI while continuing to freelance everywhere from New York City to San Antonio to Denver.
