Elizabeth is a Certified Yoga Instructor, Fight Choreographer, Dance Choreographer, Film and Theater Director, Tap Dance Instructor, Martial Arts Student, Physical Devised Theatrical Performance Artist, Spoken Word Artist, Published Writer, Produced Playwright, Singer/Songwriter, Theatre Grant Recipient and Award Winning Theater Educator.
Born and raised in Ithaca, NY, Elizabeth began her passion for theatre in the Hangar Theatre's Next Generation program and it continued all the way through adulthood when she got her BA in Drama from Ithaca College. While studying at Ithaca she took part in Circle In The Square's Summer Musical Theatre Program (Off-Broadway NYC) as well as The Eugene O'Neil National Theatre Institute where she studied both in Waterford, CT as well as St. Petersburg, Russia. After graduating from IC she escaped to London, England and stage managed three shows before returning to NY where she planted roots for the better part of 9 years in NYC. She did everything from acting in outdoor Shakespeare theater to performing as a reader for Broadway Casting Directors all while she began to get her plays workshopped and produced in Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens. It wasn't until she returned home in 2017 to Ithaca that she discovered her real passion for empowering artists through theatrical projects and thus Clockmaker Arts was born. Her passion for both social justice as well as self-care practices has become a foundation of the work she seeks to do in cultivating a safe space for both artists and audience alike.
