Actor, singer, voiceover artist

30 SECONDS

I was born and raised in New Jersey, wait!  Don't go away!  I'm currently appearing in Off-Broadway's most irreverent show, Drunk Shakespeare. Although I love the stage, I'm looking to get into TV and film. I have trained in voiceover and done a few commercials, VO and on camera. I've been in several new media projects and independent films, and will be in many more to come!

THE LIFE STORY

I started dancing when I was three--ballet, jazz, tap, and hip hop, for eight years.  My passion for the arts grew to include singing and acting, which is why musical theater became my obsession.  I was involved in middle and high school productions, as well as community theater.  Highlights include:  Mrs. Lovett in Sweeney Todd, Sharpay in High School Musical, and Ms. Hannigan in Annie.

Now I have a BFA in Drama from NYU Tisch.  At the Atlantic Acting School, I took classes in voice, speech, suzuki, script analysis, and more.  One semester, I studied Shakespeare in London at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art.  Finally, I went to Stonestreet Film Studios, where I learned the nuances of acting on camera, developed screenwriting skills, and compiled my first reel.

After graduating in December 2013, I was in a touring company with the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey called "Shakespeare LIVE!"  We condensed Julius Caesar and A Midsummer Night's Dream to an hour each, and brought our shows to hundreds of schools.  Then I was in Macbeth with Kenneth Branagh, and now Drunk Shakespeare!
