Born and Raised in New York City, I am most drawn to projects that have interesting and off-beat characters that go through challenging scenarios, and have meaningfully structured storylines. Creative teams that are willing to risk failure to do something outside the box and innovate material with a personalized style always gets my support. What's most important to me is the people I'm working with. Collaboration is key, and while I always appreciate guidance from a director or producer, I often feel the need to make my interpretations clear during the rehearsal process. Nothing is more vital than getting on the same page from the beginning, so to me, early communication is key.
In addition to acting and writing, I have experience in research, clinical work experience, dance and movement, mask, and various technical departments including lighting and run-crew.
