Hi, I'm Bess (she/they)! I'm a classically trained actor and have had the opportunity to bring my stage combat training to roles in Shakespeare's most famous plays.
When not combining my love of the classics and telling the story of violence, I'm teaching combat at local high schools or choreographing for productions in DC and Baltimore.
