Kinsey has a passion for the arts in many forms including: acting, writing, singing, dancing, and playing piano. She loves to read, especially fantasy books. Some of her favorites include Harry Potter (she’s read every book at least 7 times — don’t challenge her on trivia), any Rick Riordan book, Swiss Family Robinson, the Ranger’s Apprentice series, Gregor the Overlander series, and any books about adventures in made-up places. In her downtime, she creates characters with fully-developed storylines which become her own book ideas and screenplays. Someday she will likely be a published author.

Like any actor, Kinsey loves movies. Her Gen X parents introduce her to many of the films popular in the 80s like The Breakfast Club, Sixteen Candles, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, The Goonies, American Werewolf in London, Gremlins and so on. But she also likes current films and enjoys going to the theater with her family and a big bucket of popcorn.

IMG_20180218_205634.jpgKinsey is often complimented on her maturity level, a characteristic she applies to her education through the independent study fostered by her school’s hybrid homeschool discipline. Not surprisingly, despite her busy life, Kinsey is a straight-A student. She also keeps active in her school participating in Drama Club and serving as past Student Council class representative. Kinsey recently began learning the martial art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and she has become committed to the self-defense, strength training, and fitness it teaches. But if you ask Kinsey about her most cherished activity, she will probably tell you it’s participating in her youth group at church. Kinsey is an active member of her church’s youth council and recently was part of a select group of students (she was the youngest) who interviewed and made recommendations for hiring the new youth director. She also serves as acolyte coordinator, babysits for the church’s MOPS program, sings in the youth band, and performs in a number of different church presentations from the annual Christmas play, to a Broadway Review each year. A great way to describe Kinsey would be: busy but grounded.

Kinsey is an absolute joy in class. I have been working with and training Kinsey for over a year now. Kinsey has an uncanny enthusiasm for the work. She lives and breathes story or script analysis, she has earned the respect of her peers by always cheering them. Her memory is consistently rock solid and the way she conveys her characters is a reflection of her inner soul searching. Kinsey is an old soul whose craft is her way to express and explore her creative spirit. I see so many opportunities coming her way. Or she will simply create them. I look forward to watching Kinsey’s career and I hope to be by her side…cheering her on!” ~Brent Brooks, Owner, Blank Stage Acting Studio
