My work is rooted in the principles of ensemble-driven collaboration, inclusion, and outreach. Based on these characteristics, I have three primary goals as an artist and collaborator: Firstly, to cultivate artistic environments where multidisciplinary artists feel they can thrive and explore without reservation. Secondly, to participate in projects that are inclusive and accessible. Finally, to support and create work that is innovative, explorative, and celebrates our shared humanity.
I’ve always been a person with a lot of interests. Arguably too many, depending on who you ask. I remember joking with my mom when I told her I wanted to be an actor, saying that it was so I could have any job I wanted--lawyer, journalist, marine biologist (a stretch, but still). Thankfully, I have parents with a good sense of humor and a desire to see their only kid happy, so they supported me the whole way. This lead me to pursue the arts wholeheartedly, going on to receive my BFA in Musical Theater from Syracuse University, immediately followed by a Masters in Classical Acting from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art. Since arriving in NYC, I have strived to have an active role in creating theater that is ensemble-driven, collaborative, and accessible. Not only have I sought this as a performer, but it has led me to hold production and administrative roles with several independent theater companies in NYC, as well as given me opportunities to work with kids as a visiting artist in schools around the country.
