ABOUT ME

  For as long as I can remember, I have always performed. I came out of the womb a singing monster. As a kid, I sang everywhere I could: church, talent shows, on the bed of my father's truck in the driveway belting “On My Own” for all the neighbors to hear… everywhere. By the age of 8 I got my first break playing Michael Darling in Peter Pan at a local CLO. And the rest is history. I was in love, hooked, and completely determined. Besides, I was better at memorizing lines than my times tables, so my purpose seemed clear.

 

  I trained through high school, attending the Academy for the Performing Arts as a musical theatre major. It was there my love for dance developed after a teacher convinced me to try the advanced dance classes on for size. I eventually ended up a double major, adding dance to the canon with a minor in choreography.

 

  Then it was off to College at the Pacific Conservatory of the Performing Arts, where I expanded my passions to include Shakespeare, Chekov, Viewpoints and the like.

 

  After graduating I knew where my heart belonged; New York City was in my mind's eye. I had always walked too fast, spoken too honestly, and been unnaturally dependent on coffee and I was ready to take the plunge. Since then, I have been working professionally in theatres across the country and overseas. Loving it more and more with every passing year.
