Biography/Résumé

Welcome!  I am a New York-based, Equity actor, singer, and voiceover artist working in contemporary, classical, and musical theatre.  I recently joined New York City's TITAN Theatre Company as a member of the Young Company following a critically acclaimed repertory season performing with the Michigan Shakespeare Festival.  I graduated with my MFA in Acting from Wayne State University in 2015 after performing as a company member with its Hilberry Repertory Theatre during my three years there.  I've also had the good fortune of spending an extraordinary month training at the Moscow Art Theatre School.  My language-loving self has an additional degree in Spanish from Wellesley College in Massachusetts, and I spent a year of my undergraduate career studying in Spain.  I delight in new challenges and experiences entirely too much, and, oddly enough, I also happen to be an AHA-certified CPR instructor.  It's weird.  So there you have it.  I am a curious combination of sundry skills wrapped in an ethnically ambiguous package.  Thanks for visiting!
