Hey! I'm a Juilliard-trained actor, writer, and musician based in Los Angeles.

I was a house performer at UCB LA and am great with comedy/improv as well as dramatic works.

Here for you if you need:

- A great cold reader
- Help with script analysis
- Someone to just run lines with
- An energetic read you can respond to...we're staring at spots on our walls y'all, I get it haha

I use my VO mic so the reader audio is always super clear.

More than happy to just be a present reader and let you do your thing or give any notes or adjustments if you would like.

Let's have some fun!

Feel free to shoot me a message on IG or email me if I'm not available and we can set up a time.

Hey! I'm a Juilliard trained actor, writer, and musician based in Los Angeles.

I was a house performer at UCB LA and am great with comedy and giving notes on how to make the writing and punchlines in a script really sing!

I geek out on script analysis! I spend a lot of my free time watching shows and studying scenes from both a directorial and a writing standpoint, so always love finding ways to give even the shortest of scenes a compelling arc that's fun to perform.

I'm also well versed in dramatic scenes and very good at any jargon or dialogue heavy scripts.
More than happy to give any notes or adjustments or just be a present reader and let you do your thing!

Let's have some fun!
