Biography

    Having grown up with artistic family members, Dad a pianist and his sister my dance teacher, I developed a love for the arts at an early age. After performing in the Binghamton University Youth Musical Theatre program, I became hooked on acting as well. In High School I realized both dancing and acting would contribute to a career. After furthering my training, I have taken many roles in theatre, utilizing my skills. I aim to tour, travel, and inspire humanity through the arts.

I recently worked on the first horror feature film to be shot during quarantine and adhering 100% to the social distancing guidelines. You can read about The Dark Offerings on Dread Central and Tom Holland's Terror Time using the links below:

I also recently filmed a virtual reading of a short film script that will be posted online along with a link to a nonprofit helping underprivileged families get the supplies they need for virtual learning at home. More details on that to come.
