But who is the
"Real" Dawn...

Informal moment: since I know that's what you're really trying to figure out: Who I really am as a person as opposed to the cut & dry resume and skills list.

Well, I've been working in theatre pretty much non-stop since graduation in 2005, either with touring musicals or with summerstock/festival programs.  Those jobs are always very-full-time, and I'm okay with that.  After all, I can say I've worked in 49 states and worked with all sorts of people. 

But when I'm not working in the theatre, my side interests include photography (landscape/ weather/ real-estate), NASA & space travel, and embarking on roadtrips in my trusty Mustang.  I also probably spend too much on social media, but someday I'll hopefully break that habit. Until then, it's a great way to stay in touch with my theatre colleagues all over the country (and world).
