From the moment I started talking, I’ve been entertaining audiences of all sizes. From the couch of my parent’s living room to crowded sports competitions, to sold-out theaters, I have spent a significant amount of time making a name for myself; and there is no better time than now to do so. I completed my undergraduate degree and earned a B.A. in Theater Arts with a focus in Performance Creation.
I have done shows with the Guthrie, the History Theater, The Minnesota Opera, Park Square Theater, and the Mixed Blood Theater. I have talents with singing, dance, stage and film acting, and makeup artistry. I trained in the past at the Ordway Theater in their Musical Theater Masterclasses. I also did a brief stint in London, England to take a workshop at Shakespeare's Globe Theater. I am an incredibly passionate performer, who has been working in the industry since 2008, and I am ready to start working with you on any projects you may have in mind.

THANK YOU PLACES PODCAST
Featuring Jamila Joiner
A podcast that focuses on navigating the world as a performer while highlighting Minneapolis theatre artists and always asks the question, "What's your skincare routine?" Follow me on instagram @thankyouplacespod
We talk about how to quantify success as an actor (hint: it doesn't come from the outside), what it feels like to S L O W down, and we talk a lot about how, as actors, we also need to be business people.
Jamila is also a bonafide skincare aficionado so we talk a lot about our skincare routines!
