ABOUT ME

 

 

*

 

I am a NYC based Actor/Dancer/Singer/Choreographer.

 

I have been seen off-bway in ANGEL REAPERS at The Signature Theatre (Dir. Martha Clarke), THE TEMPEST at The Public Theater/Shakespeare in the Park (Dir. Michael Greif) and as an original NYC Cast Member of the acclaimed, SLEEP NO MORE (Punchdrunk) (Winner of the 2011 Drama Desk for Unique Theatrical Experience & 2011 Drama League Nominated Ensemble). TV Credits include Gone (NBC Universial), Girls (HBO), Gossip Girl (CW), & VH1 You Oughta Know Live (VH1).
 

My versatility as an actor/dancer has been influential in bridging my passions for film, TV, theater and dance.


Hailing  from a small town in Central Pennsylvania (pop. 250 people and 350 deer) I hold degrees in Biology and NeuroPsychology from Dickinson College, and continued my studies in Dance and Theater at the Univ. of the Arts, in Philadelphia. Moving to NYC in 2005 on a Full Scholarship/Graduate Assitantship from NYU Tisch, I completed my MFA in 2007. My decision to pursue a career as a performer was orchestrated by “acting on instinct” and I continue to allow life’s improvisational score to serve as a structure for my artistic journey.

I don't know what is better than the work that is given to the actor--to teach the human heart the knowledge of itself."
