AIC Annual Awards Just Announced!

And I won “Best Female Improviser” and “Best Teacher/Director/Coach” from the Austin Improv Collective. All the performing improvisers (about 200 people) in Austin get to nominate people and vote on the winners.

I’m really happy about these awards. I’ve been working really hard this year and (I think) performing really well and it’s really satisfying to be recognized by the community.
