Merit’s love for story-telling, creating, and the arts runs deep. They enjoy tabletop gaming, writing flash fiction, training in stage combat and more. Originally from Texas, Merit moved to Minnesota in 2014 seeking out a sense of transformation. By 2018, they began pushing their boundaries even further and found many exciting and challenging opportunities as a writer, improvisational street theatre, director and performer of performance in stand-up comedy, and traditional stage work. Sasparella Trauffea is Dancing! is Merit’s GREAT debut.
