Renan Snowden

Renan Snowden's big break came as a contestant on DC's locally televised high school trivia show, "It's Academic."

Even though her team finished in second place, Renan was undeterred from looking for the spotlight. In 2008, she found it when she took her first improv class at WIT.

Renan has performed on WIT Harold Teams Fran, Tiovivo, CaptainPhD and in the WIT special projects The Feminine Experience, (Y)our Town, and Queer Variety Cavalcade. Renan also has performed on indie teams Prettier Than You, The Female Accent, and The Four Get Me Nots. She has performed at the Baltimore Improv Festival, the Chicago Improv Festival, the Steelstacks (PA) Comedy Festival, the Del Close Marathon (NYC), and the North Carolina Comedy Arts Festival. In addition, Renan has taken improv classes at WIT and at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre in New York.

By day, Renan works in economic development promoting her hometown, Washington, DC, as a great place to live, work, and play. She is a big proponent of the arts as a catalyst for economic and community development.

Renan has strong opinions about dessert and gives homemade fudge as Christmas gifts.
