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 September of 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, particularly for those unlike ourselves. I'm also a big fan of free and accessible art, working in highly collaborative ensembles, and art as activism.

I love to bake and write poetry, I aspire to write children's books one day, my comfort show is Bob's Burgers, and my labradoodle Lily is my absolute pride and joy.
