Being the youngest in their family, Zoë had Computer Software Engineers, Pilots, Air Traffic Controllers, and Musicians to look up to for future careers. Their familial background of professions gave them the freedom to be a Computer Scientist, Fashion major, or a Performer. They chose the latter.
Zoë attended TEC Connections Academy. They graduated early in 2019 as a member of the National Honor Society with a 4.0 GPA,
and set off to study Theatre and Directing at The Boston Conservatory at Berklee College of Music on a full merit scholarship expecting to finish their undergrad in 2023.
Zoë began their training with dance and voice lessons at the age of ten - since then, they have been in many regional shows across Massachusetts since the age of thirteen.
Dance is still a large part of their identity as a performer, as well as dismantling the discrimination against Disabled performers within it. As a performer, and aspiring director with a rare disease, chronic illness, and a Disability themself; it is vital to their future involvement in performance spaces that we change the way we see, treat, and listen to our Disabled performers.
After graduating high school early, Zoë found a new love to kill their boredom - teaching themself how to play new instruments. They started out on the banjo, which then led to the piano, acoustic guitar, mandolin, and the musical spoons. During this time, they discovered a new love of songwriting. They started recording their own music under the alias MayTwentyTwo, hoping no one would ever hear it. This music can be heard on Bandcamp, Apple Music, and Spotify.
In the winter of their sophomore year of college, Zoë began to play gigs at restaurants and coffee shops, and can now be seen performing gigs throughout the summers on Cape Cod.
