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.

Currently Watching: Queen Charlotte: A Bridgerton Story

Currently Reading: Bi: The Hidden Culture, History, and Science of Bisexuality by Julia Shaw

UP NEXT: I will be performing in the staged readings of In McClintock's Corn and Haunted at the upcoming Washington Women in Theatre 20th Anniversary Festival over the second weekend of June! To learn more, please visit:
