Ever since I played Orphan #17 in my church basement’s production of Annie, I knew performing was for me. Whether it was the standing ovation I received from my mom after asking Annie if I should draw her a bath (yes I doubled as a housekeeper at the tender age of 6, #impressive) or that I got to tie dye my own costume, I have been performing ever since. Growing up 40 minutes outside of Manhattan, I had the privilege of seeing Broadway shows and taking classes from amazing professionals. I decided I wanted to make the city my permanent home and attended Marymount Manhattan College to major in musical theatre. Since attending school, I have not only deepened my love for theatre but also film and television acting as well. Outside of acting I love writing music, playing guitar and piano, doing yoga and knitting. I’m looking forward to my life after graduation (maybe a little nervous too!) and the excitement that is to come!
