Actor. Singer. Voice-over.
Actor. Singer. Voice over talent. They/Them.
As a queer actor, I am constantly relearning what it means to be present as myself. As I rediscover who I am on a regular basis, I am fueled by the desire to dissect the human condition through story telling and I hope to be apart of a story telling tradition yet to be fully realized in the main stream.
Born and raised in New York in the West Village I cut my theatre teeth going to Broadway shows with my family as a child and fell in love with acting at an early age. I followed my older sister into my first acting class but was a bit of a master-of-none: floating from guitar lesson to ballet classes and never sticking around long enough to learn much. Acting was different. I always felt at home on the stage and I always wanted to return.
I studied acting at University of Southern California but started to become interested in the state of our planet around the same time. I spent about ten years away from acting, working in wildlife conservation rehabilitating and releasing orphaned primates back into the wild. As well as getting two biology degrees. However, all that time I was missing a big part of myself. So I returned to my first love.
Since then I've been studying at HB Studios, The Barrow Group, Berg Studios and William Esper Studios where I am currently half way through the 2 year acting program with Barbara Marchant. I have dipped my toes into the world of voiceover and singing lessons. Acting has always been a tool for delving into what makes us human. I love finding the beauty in the ugly and discordant. I love the controlled chaos of finding myself vulnerable and in the moment of a story thats not my own, yet inherently a part of me.
