When I was 8 years old, my parents took me to see Jerry Lewis in "Damn Yankees" on Broadway. I caught the theater bug that evening and soon after, landed my first role as the Bad Cat in a musical called the "Mice From Outer Space." I still know my big song.
A Connecticut native, I received my Acting B.F.A from the University of Connecticut. During my residency at Uconn, I performed with the Connecticut Repertory Theater and earned my Equity Member Candidacy before making the leap to New York City. I have nestled into Brooklyn (Bushwick), NY.
With a passion for all aspects of theater and film, I have received writing recognition for a ten-minute short play in Hartford Stage's Write-On Festival, co-produced "The Parkville Project" for Bated Breath Theater Co, and co-wrote, assistant directed and acted in a web game show on financial literacy for teenagers, produced by Connecticut Public Television.
Shortly after my move to New York, I received a position as the assistant to the President of a theatrical booking agency, supporting international touring productions through Performing Arts Centers. Ultimately the call to acting came in, and I began coaching with Ken Schatz in 2013. I re-entered into my acting career with several short films, including a comedic sketch that was a finalist for the 24-Hour Film Festival.
As a passion project, I engage my experience from music and theater booking to work with emerging performing artists to launch their talents into a business-minded artistic career.
Lastly, I am a proud 200-hour certified yoga teacher as of November 2014, teaching from the JAI Yoga-sequence, vinyasa lineage. Out of this certification, I have focused my teaching to help heal sexual addictions, traumas, relationships, dating, romantic and familial love. As an answer to the hook-up culture generation, I've developed a course called Soul Expansion: Raise Your Frequency to re-fuel desire in relationships using yoga, kundalini kriyas, creative movement, recreational therapeutic games, and meditations geared to clearing one's energy channels, to open one's hearts for attracting love, joy, bliss and orgasms!
