I’m Kira – a lover of music, sci-fi, exploring, and iced tea. I am the wife to this studly man pictured with sick graphic design skills, named Mark Rockwell. We are the proud parents of a spunky, rescued dog-baby named Koda Bear.
A Texan, born and raised, I currently reside in Boston, Massachusetts where I am pursuing my MFA in Playwriting at Boston University and The Boston Playwrights Theatre under the direction of Kate Snodgrass.
In 2014, I graduated from Baylor University with a BFA in Theatre Performance and a minor in Film & Digital Media. While pursuing my bachelors as an actor, I took an elective playwriting course and realized my true calling. I fell into a deep love with the storytelling of playwriting and haven't stopped pursuing it since.
The theatre is such a special place to me. There is no place in this universe like it. To me it is a place of vulnerability, community, imagination, and artistic expression, a place of communal journeys and individual awakenings, of social change and constructive reflection. I thank the Lord for each day I am able to continue pursuing this craft of mine. Thanks for taking a look into my piece of the interwebz.
