At the age of 5, I directed and conceived my first original play using a shoebox as the stage and acorns as the actors.
I had my first public performance at the age of 7 where I played one of the evil step sisters in Cinderella. I waited until opening night to rewrite the script and improvise all my lines, flirtingly nicknaming Prince Charming, "Princey" and educating him that "A real woman isn't always gonna be a Cinderella."
I attempted to take ballet from an early age but was "uninvited" from the studio because I could not stand in line.
I'm now a graduate of The Boston Conservatory and current student at The William Esper Studio of Acting. At these institutions I learned how to memorize and speak the text on the page, devise theater with humans instead of acorns, and stand in a line (if I feel like it).
I like painting, writing songs, coffee and hat shops.
. I've recently joined Rude Grooms, a startup theatre company rooted in Elizabethan Tradition, as their Associate Artist for 2019-2020. I will be artistically involved in their productions as either actor/composer/designer or a combination of those titles!
. I'll be performing the role of Janet in The Rocky Horror Show with Exit 82 Theatre in New Jersey to be directed by Corey Rubel through Nov 2019.
. I'm hosting a second performance of SofarOff: an intimate concert series of original music, in Tribeca. I'll be joined by fellow songwriters and musicians to be announced!
I've been lucky enough to have been given a few honors. This year, I was selected to receive the 2019 Roger Sturtevant Musical Theater Award through Actor's Equity Foundation for which I am very grateful to the casting directors of Casting Society of America and the members of Actor's Equity Foundation.
I attended The Boston Conservatory as an Ivy and Fran Scricco Scholar and during my time at school, I was approved for The Entrepreneurial Grant to study abroad with Kristin Linklater at her voice centre in Scotland.
I'm due to graduate from the Esper Studio this May. In the meantime, you can catch me performing in projects around NYC and playing my music around town for anyone who'll hear!
