About Me

I’ve known I had to be an actor since high school. I got a chance to see Phylicia Rashad in a play and as I watched her I knew I had to work to inspire someone the way she inspired me that night. Since then I’ve been pursuing this dream wholeheartedly. I’ve been blessed with several Off-Broadway roles, a couple short films, and a new televised commercial. My dream is to be on Broadway and I am excited about my future in this industry.

Working with children is so special for me because I like seeing the positive impact I can have on them. I love being a part of children learning, growing, and expanding their creativity. At the end of this year, as a middle school drama teacher I was amazed at the results my students produced. It wasn’t only about what they achieved onstage, but their ability to work together, think outside the box, support and complement each other, and facilitate every aspect of their final performance. To know I was a part of that is an invaluable feeling.
