Hi there! I'm a New York based actor, singer, musician, and writer originally from the DC area.

I work in TV/Film and theatre in both dramatic and comedic genres. Regional credits include THE WOLVES (Helen Hayes Winner) and WHITE PEARL at Studio Theatre, the national tour of THE BUDDY HOLLY STORY, and several independent and short films. I have a B.A. in Theatre/Drama from Indiana University, have trained with Ken Schatz (2014-present), Heidi Marshall & Matt Newton Studio (On-Camera), and Upright Citizens Brigade (Ongoing Improv Study).

Happy to give adjustments/suggestions if it's helpful for you. I really love connecting and collaborating with other artists. Let me know what you need!
