Hi! I'm Rikki and I want to change the world.
Growing up, it was clear that I had a passion for creativity. When people asked what I wanted to be I said I wanted to be an "artist," and I meant it in every sense of the word. I just liked surrounding myself with art and people who like art as well.
It wasn't long after that I began finding my love for singing and that later lead me to start doing theatre. All throughout high school I swore up and down I would study musical theatre in college, and when the time came I did just that. I went to Marymount Manhattan College to pursue a performance degree, and picked up another major in journalism when I found my voice in writing as well.
On my journey throughout college, in light of the 2016 election and all of what was going on in the world, I vowed to always create art that will impact people and make them feel something. I don't want my work to just be there, I want my art to matter.
Since then, I have been fortunate enough to take on projects with incredibly important messages and have made an impact on some amazing communities.
Some highlights include producing and starring in Evelyn: A New Musical at Dixon Place and starring in American Idiot (JustArt Theatricals) in a time where the source material was and continues to be extraordinarily prominent.
At the end of the day, I'm a gay NYC artist who just wants to make a difference. And who loves Applebees.
