Hi I'm Cynthia

I'm a musical theater actress and performing arts teacher. I love Sci-fi and dance. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I am a "starving artist",(single and childless) working towards my goal of being in a Broadway show. In the meantime, I teach kids and music direct high school and college musicals. I love to dance, ballet and West Coast Swing being major favorites. I love to run and go to the gym. I'm training for a half-marathon and a Spartan Race. I'm a bookworm loving every genre of fiction and I LOVE to bake and share my sweet creations. If I ever have the opportunity, I would love to go to pastry school. I grew up in Salt Lake and was raised by a staunch LDS mother and a father who has no interest in religion.

Why I am a Mormon

In a world (and especially a career) with so much uncertainty, the gospel has provided such a sense of purpose and direction. I have felt the peace of the Spirit when going on auditions and know that the Lord has a plan for me and that as long as I live the gospel and try my best to stay close to the Savior, all things will work for my good. I know that the Savior lives and loves each of us. His Atonement not only saves us from our sins, but helps us with all our pains, insecurities, griefs, heartaches, and loneliness. The Book of Mormon is a true book. When I read it, I feel such a sense of peace and love. Every time I am searching for answers, I find them in the Book of Mormon. While other religions inspire goodness and love, this is the ONLY church that has all the answers and provides us with the means of making our families eternal and living with our Heavenly Father again.

How I live my faith

Being in theater means I come in contact with many people not of our faith and with values that differ vastly from ours. In addition to living my standards and telling my fellow cast-mates why, I make it a point to befriend them and treat them with love and kindness. More than once I have heard, "You are the coolest Mormon I ever met!" I make it a point to go to church every Sunday even when performing and share the lessons and experiences while putting on our costumes and makeup. I also work on exposing my "Theater Friends" with my "Mormon Friends" through monthly potluck dinner parties. Although we have yet to have a baptism, new friendships have been forged, bridges built, and testimonies and Book of Mormons shared.
