A little bit about me...
I have previous experience in theater, film, voice-over, and vocal performance. I am also a dancer and choreographer of HipHop, Modern, Jazz, Contemporary and Lyrical. With my positive personality, and effervescent nature, I am vigorously pursuing the many opportunities that this industry has to offer. I am continuously training and improving my craft, and thoroughly enjoy immersing myself in this business and my art. I started training as an actor when I was 14 years old, with Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit, and started working as a professional actor when I was 15. I went on to study acting at Miami University and received a BA in Theatre. After my studies, and before heading off to Europe, I returned to Detroit for 2 years as a Director, Choreographer, Acting Teacher, and Dance Instructor. My efforts and performances have taken me all over the U.S., Italy, and Germany, as well as, Canada, England, Wales, France, Denmark, Singapore, and Malaysia.
I am a Detroit native, but have very recently relocated to Chicago. Before that, I spent 6 years on tour with English-speaking theater companies throughout Italy and Germany. My thirst for perfoming motivates me and drives my courageous ambitions. I am a seasoned professional, and character actor, that learns fast, is a chameleon, and is fully committed to any production. I have been in producitons from classicals to contemporary, children's theater to tragedies; striving to break the mold and go against "traditional casting". My interests include theater, film, commercials, voice-over, voice performance for animation, and choreography. It's true what Shakespeare said, all the world IS a stage...stage, classroom, studio, and battlefield. "Places."
