Annie has been performing long and short form improv since 1997. in 2001 she helped found the children’s improv touring group, Smarty Pants Theater Company before making her way west to Los Angeles where she studied longform improv at the iO West Theater. Over the years a steady strong philosophy of team over individual and performing in the now has emerged. With this idea in place Annie began coaching which eventually turning into teaching. She currently teaches at MI’s Westside Comedy Theater and iO West where she also runs the student performance program the Lottery. These days you can see her performing with Harold Champions, USS Rock n Roll as well as in NOW? with Annie & Levin. Annie is also a working commercial actor and has appeared in several national and local spots. She gets totally jazzed off about improv and yes that’s how she talks about it!
