At six-years old, I was brought to the theatre for the first time to see the Lion King on broadway. I remember the overwhelming urge to jump out of my seat and sing at the top of my lungs.
Shortly after, I played Winnie the Pooh at the Paper Mill Playhouse young performer program. My acting-trained parents say I truly believed I was in the Hundred Acre Woods with Piglet.
From then on, theatre was the place I could be my fully authentic self - often looked at as weird - full of boundless energy, out of the box ideas and an overcommitment to playing pretend. I was discovering my truth, embracing the freedom that the stage allowed and learning how to give others permission to do the same.
I honed my artistic voice at the Boston University, where I earned a Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Acting with minors in Music and Musical theatre. In my career, I have been elated to work with some incredible companies, such as the Williamstown Theatre Festival and the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, and I have had the pleasure of studying at the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, The Stella Adler Conservatory and NYU Tisch School of the Arts.
I am a singer, a songwriter, and a musician, as well as an acting teacher and coach with experience in stage combat.
