About Me

I am an actor/director/theatre maker and teaching artist originally from a small town in North Carolina, now based in DC! In 2021 I graduated with a BFA in Drama from New York University where I studied at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting. 

Above all else I am interested in art's ability to foster empathy. I'm also a big fan of free and accessible art, working in highly collaborative ensembles, and experimenting with different kinds of theatre.

I love to bake, listen to queer comedy podcasts, and spend entirely too much time on any porch swing or swing set that crosses my path. Watching Bob's Burgers is my late night stress relief of choice, and my labradoodle Lily is my absolute pride and joy.
