About Me

Upon moving to New York City, I was so excited at all the opportunities that laid before me. I was a recent graduate from a prestigious university hoping to turning his dreams of acting into a reality. But what people often forget is the life of an actor isn’t all fun and games….or can it be?

The thought of being a babysitter/nanny was the perfect opportunity for me. When it comes down to it, I’m just a big kid at heart. I love making people laugh first and foremost. I feel it makes the world a better place when we are all together, sharing a joke.

That being said though, I take my work as a sitter very seriously. Having worked formally as a camp counselor and a manny for a family of six kids here in the city, I have armed myself with a huge skill set to maneuver just about any situation thrown my way. With me, it’s all about teaching the children that there have to be responsibilities for our actions. Homework must be done, toys have to be picked up, and we all have to do it in a respectful way. And when we can do that, everything else seems to run smoothly.

At the end of the day, it’s all about having fun with the kids. But the best part is we can make anything fun if we try! I will not deny my cheesiness, but I seriously believe that with a firm set of guidelines and respect for one another, we can work together to make lasting memories with one another.

I have professional childcare experience with…

Infants, Toddlers, Pre-school aged children, Elementary school aged children, Middle school aged children

I will be SmartSitting while…

Auditioning for television, film, and live theatre.

In 5 years, I hope to be…

Starring in a Broadway Show! Although, off-Broadway wouldn't be so bad either!

Activities & skills I love to teach & share with children…

Acting, singing, dancing (Ballet, Jazz, and a little Tap), crafts, cooking, reading, and playing sports (Even if I'm not the best, I love to stay active and I love to learn about the sports!)
