ABOUT ME 

I am a long island native, born and raised, currently living in Manhattan. It wasn't untill I recieved a standing ovation for my performance of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's "I am the cute one, she's just my sister" as a first grader in my home town's variety show that I caught the "performing bug". For my senior year of highschool in 2008 I attended The Long Island Highschool for the arts, concetrating in Musical Theater. In 2012 I graduated SUNY Cortland with  a dual degree in Musical Theater and Communication. That summer I interned at WBLI radio staton while rehearsing for my first off Broadway debut In JD Lawrence Presents Your husband is Cheating On Us. It was and still is the first ever staged musical/play at BB Kings on 42nd in the heart of times square. Since then I have been activley working in theater, tv/film and commericals in New York and cross country.

*Recently seen in the off-Broadway revival of THE EIGHT: Reindeer Monologues at St. Lukes.
