HI THERE. IT'S NICE TO MEET YOU!
Born and raised in Erie, Pennsylvania, I was lucky enough to grow up taking dance classes, singing in choir and performing in school productions. I always knew I wanted to be an artist, so after high school, I moved to New York City to attend The American Musical and Dramatic Academy, a two-year conservatory where I studied musical theatre.
Since my graduation, I have worked as both an actor and producer on projects ranging from independent films, pilot presentations, music videos, and commercials, to a new musical project, internet game show and an international MTV docu-series show, "Young and Married". I was also selected as a top-six finalist for the first digital talent outreach contest by ABC entitled "ABC Make Me A Star". I believe that knowledge of all sides of our industry is imperative and contributes to better collaboration for both filmmakers and actors.

HERE'S WHAT I'M UP TO LATELY..
While independently producing films, I've been able to study my craft in a new and exciting way that involves collaborating on multiple films, pilots and readings. I'm super excited to continue to make my own work and grow my skills as I move ahead on my journey as an artist, producer and actress.
