A theatre, tv, and film actor from in Central Illinois. Theo uses both they/them/theirs and he/him/his pronouns. In high school, for Senior Bests, they were voted Most Likely to Join the Circus and Best Artist, but the yearbook club told them they weren’t allowed to be the best of two things, and they could only pick one.
In spite of the limitations of a small town and a small school, they left, and went on to study trapeze, aerial silks, aerial straps, fire breathing, fire eating, stilt walking, voice, music, physical theatre, dance, and acting, and didn’t look back. They split their time between Chicago and Los Angeles, and have been seen on stage at Steppenwolf, The Goodman, Writer’s Theatre, American Theatre Company, Timeline Theatre, and most recently, played a very unsettling Weird Sister in Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s production of Macbeth, directed by Aaron Posner, and Teller.
On-screen, they appeared in the feature film ADAM, and co-starred in the pilot Work in Progress, two projects that received their world premieres at the Sundance Film Festival in 2019. They’ve also been seen in a variety of independent projects around Chicago, including a couple of web series via Open TV, and Full Spectrum Features, as well as being featured in Teen Vogue’s “7 Trans Performers Share The Challenges They Still Face and Their Hopes for the Future” alongside Nicole Maines and Ryan Cassata.
When they aren’t working, they spend their time learning a new skill, listening to metal, watching Star Trek, or dreaming up new, queer, trans, futures of the entertainment industry.
