"This one is a performer..."

Every family has one.

I was born and raised in the suburbs of Detroit. And when I wasn't playing dress up or pretend warrior in the backyard, I was paying attention to my surroundings and the stories around me. I attended DePaul University with the intention to study Philosophy- a nod to my pursuit of studying and understanding humanity. When I seriously started missing the process and reward of performing, I transferred to Columbia College Chicago, where I graduated (with honors) with a Bachelor’s Degree In Acting. I am in the process of obtaining my masters degree is psychology at Pepperdine University as I also pursue my acting career.

After feeling stuffed from the buffet of Chicago life, I headed west to sunny Los Angeles. Not wasting any time, I booked an audition for a MTV series, landed the lead role in an indie feature, and worked as a series regular in a fresh new media project. I quickly set the pace for life in LA. Since then, I've found my footing in LA's immersion theater community with companies such as The Speakeasy Society, Darren Boussman's The Experiences, Rogue Artists Ensemble, and JustFixIt Production. I dedicate much of my free time to my theater production company, The Halogen Company. The Halogen Company is devoted to intimate and interactive theater and revels in stories that break down the human condition in a more philosophical approach. As a creator, I approach directing as a collaborative experience and find it is important to be both behind and in the scene. My voice is husky and very identifiables, so it was no surprise when I started hearing “I should do voiceover”. With years of training under my belt, I lend my voice to commercials and find fulfillment in podcast storytelling. If I haven't shared enough and you want to get to know me even better, I write and produce content for my site Documented Explorations. It’s deeply personal and has the intent to expose stereotype breaking realities about the human experience based off my own. Looking to the future, I am spending my time producing and directing both theatre and film and seeking out acting opportunities that inspire!

I am flowing tresses of hair and round cheeks. I am fearlessly honest with my thoughts and emotions and enjoy the reward of being creatively critical. I revel in projects that depict and celebrate cerebral, passionate, and unconventional qualities.
