Bartley - Olde English pre 7th Century "beorc" meaning "birch" , plus "leah", a wood, hence "Birch wood".
Booz - Dutch: Regional nickname from Middle High German boese ‘ridiculous person’, ‘low-standing servant’ or from a Germanic personal name Bozo.
It is I, Birchwood Bozo. I hail from Salt Lake City, Utah, and left the embrace of the Wasatch Front to fly to Cincinnati, where I earned a BFA in Acting from the College-Conservatory of Music.
Since graduating in 2016, I’ve moved to New York City, where, most recently, I’ve had the privilege of premiering the Off-Broadway production of ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’ at New World Stages, played with The Hearth in their company’s inaugural production: For Annie, and worked on a development of Gracie Gardner’s I’m Revolting with Atlantic Theatre Company, directed by Moritz Von Stuelpnagel.
I’ve also be lucky enough to play on Happy! (Syfy), TURN: Washington Spies (AMC), and in Here and Now (w/ Sarah Jessica Parker; dir. Fabien Constant) which premiered at Tribeca Film Festival.
