Born near a well known city consisted of Arts; theatre, singing and dancing are my love when performing. During my last two years of high school I performed in Grease the musical and Hairspray which I had a small side role. I then took on learning ballet and modern after 5 years of conditioned dancing through high school. I created a modern soloist piece that I performed at Rio Hondo college. Types of genres I am familiar with is Ballet, modern, jazz, hip-hop, tap, and color guard. I received another opportunity a year and a half later to star in Mary Poppins the musical at Citrus community college. Currently I am getting paid equity for an upcoming performance of Funny Girl at the Rialto theatre in South Pasadena. In Pasadena City college I am currently taking two writing courses to expand my knowledge of the other side of theatre; being the storyteller. I plan to use my skills of performing as well as writing play writes and screenplays in the future, and to produce and direct and star as side characters in my own work. I also have experience of tech crew and building scenery for stages. I can never get away from performing infront of people; to perform is one thing but to inspire and leave a mark onto your audience is a thrill.
