Welcome! I'm Tamsen.
I'm an actor, classically trained singer, and coach currently based in Chicago. The only goal is to do great work with great people. The more range the better.
You can catch me on anything from network tv shows like neXt and Chicago Med, to Lifetime Christmas movies, to The Onion's podcast The Topical.
I'm the co-creator and performer of YOU BE THE GUY, a modern cabaret built around analyzing what happens when the male narrative in the musical theatre canon (along with many other music genres) changes when coming from a femme approach.
Proudly represented by DDO Chicago.
