Triss Leder’s love of the stage began at the tender age of 3. Since then, her performance highlights include older Cosette (Les Miserables), Ado Annie (Oklahoma), Elsa Schraeder (Sound of Music), Cinderella (Into the Woods), and the chorus/ensemble in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat and Suor Angelica.
Triss’ love of performing extends to her 30+ years playing violin, 12 years study of classical ballet, and a lifelong passion for singing. Throughout high school and college, Triss studied voice with Esther England at the University of Montana in her hometown of Missoula. After a brief time in the Musical Theatre program at UNC Colorado, she returned to the U of MT to earn her BA in Theatre: Acting in 2008.
Over the last ten years Triss has been adopted into the TTRPG/nerd community. In that time, she has played in several long-term campaigns, as well as GM-ing one of her own. From 2019-2021 she co-produced the now-wrapped Mythguided: a D&D actual play podcast, in which she was also a cast member.
Triss currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with her other half, Forrest, and their two kidlins, where she continues to pursue her passions in theatre, voice acting, and film, as well as working to finish her first novel. During the school year, she works as a Paraeducator in an elementary level, high-needs Special Education classroom and, in her spare time, is learning to crochet.
