The Early Years

Hi there! Thanks for taking interest in my artistic journey. Here’s my story:

As I grew up I loved inhabiting many different versions of myself throughout all the after school activities I participated in: boy scouts, karate, ballroom dancing, fencing, skateboarding and a wide range of sports. Being a jack of all trades I realized how fun it would be to create and use my talents on stage and ever since playing a Leonardo da Vinci helicopter imaginary thingy in 3rd grade, I never looked back. Fast forward through my middle school and high school career of juggling sports, after school clubs, and being in every theater production from musicals, one-acts, straight plays and even homecoming follies. I decided to continue on the path and received a BFA at Virginia Commonwealth University and have been professional for the past six years.

NYC Off-Broadway

I started in the Off-Broadway hit Sleep No More at The McKittrick Hotel. Then spent two years as a BAT at The Flea Theater,highlighted with two mainstage shows. The Mysteries-- a five hour epic tale written by 48 playwrights going through the main stories of the bible. And Neighborhood 3: Requisition of Doom by Jennifer Haley, directed by the acclaimed film director Joel Schumacher. 

Television

Throughout my time in NYC I have booked co-stars on The Americans, Blue Bloods, Law & Order: SVU, and Netflix’s The Good Cop. My first guest star will be airing this fall on the new Apple TV streaming service!

Improv

Longform improv is also something I love to be a part of. In college I performed regularly at a late night variety show after going to a Second City summer intensive in Chicago with my fellow improvisers. While in New York I have steadily taken UCB classes and excited to complete the full curriculum this summer 2019.

Hobbies

You may catch me doing my favorite thing— skateboarding around the city and/or dancing with friends on the weekends. I honed my dancing skills at the many bar/bat mitzvahs and weddings I attended growing up.
