nice to meet you.
My name is Claire and I grew up on the shores of Huntington Beach, CA. For as long as I can remember, I have always been looking for ways to express myself.
I attended the Orange County School of the Arts as a part of the Music & Theatre conservatory. I recently graduated from Chapman University's Dodge College of Film & Media Arts in Southern California, with a BFA in Screen Acting. At Chapman, I've been able to develop my artistic perspective through all aspects of film and theatre while getting incredible on-set experience.
I performed alongside my peers in the Chapman University BFA Student Showcase at the SAG Screening Room in LA on May 7th, 2019.
I'm currently a music contributor for Merry-Go-Round Magazine, an independent, online culture mag based out of Los Angeles. A few of my features include the symbolic lunar cycle of Beach House's career and why I think Mitski's album Be The Cowboy should be a Broadway musical. Every now and then, I'll write about pop culture. Check out my recap of my family's Napoleon Dynamite-themed road trip. I work as Communications Manager for Chapman Radio, and I've also reviewed shows for our blog, including Whitney and SALES. READ MORE
I also make music. I'm the singer/songwriter/rhythm guitarist for my band, Inverted Jenny. We've played various gigs in Orange County and recently released our first EP, COSMIC CRUSH. LISTEN HERE
Concert photography is another one of my passions. I've been fortunate enough to photograph some of my favorite bands live, including Turnover and Unknown Mortal Orchestra. TAKE A LOOK
