ABOUT YOUR INSTRUCTOR
Erin has studied long-form improv with Philadelphia Improv Theater under Kristen Schier, Nick Gillette, Mike Marbach, and Greg Maughan. She performed with House Team ZaoGao from 2011-2013. She has also taken workshops with Christina Gausas, Susan Messing, Michael Delaney, Maggy Keegan, and Christian Capozolli. Erin was most recently a member of PHIT House Team Hooch and director of PHIT ensemble Metropolis.
When Erin isn’t performing, she is spending time with her family in Western Massachusetts, rolling around town on her 1970’s Raleigh, behind the lens of her camera, or snuggling with her pup, Mack. She is constantly looking for someone to pay for her to go back to school or to pay for all of her current student loans so she can then get more by going back to school.
