Current & Upcoming
Love's Labour's Lost
I am incredibly pleased to announce that I am playing Boyet and Moth in the Stella Adler Studio of Acting's NYU Company production of Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost! This production was directed by Kern McFadden, and features eight senior student actors (myself included) who auditioned into the Company. We offered several live, virtual performances open to the public through out the Fall 2020 semester, as well as a virtual outreach tour.

The Royal Social Distancing Company
Founded by Samantha Jancosek and myself in May 2020, The Royal Social Distancing Company began as a group of Stella Adler Studio of Acting trained actors and creators searching for connection, and exploring the world of virtual theatre during this time of isolation. We began doing so through Shakespeare readings broadcast on Zoom. I've been lucky enough to direct Twelfth Night, act in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Julius Caesar, and As You Like It, and both co-direct and act in Macbeth. In the Fall of 2020, we were able to work with members of both the NYU and Adler communities at large on a production of King Lear. In 2021, we have been able to add producing a New Works Festival and a showcase of Shakespeare scenes to our resume (both virtual), in which I directed a new musical (Redbeard, by Cameron Reese and RJ Christian), and a scene from Twelfth Night, respectively. I am proud to write that with each performance, we have been able to donate 50-100% of our proceeds to various nonprofits, including Broadway for All, the Homeless Black Trans Women Fund on GoFundMe, Brave Space Alliance, Broadway for Racial Justice, and the Educational Theatre Foundation's Thespian Relief Fund.
I am currently serving on the leadership team.

I am incredibly excited to announce my first official voice acting role as Elizabeth's Mother in the upcoming Carolina Film Association short film Akai. Akai is written and directed by Michael Sparks, and produced by Claire Mink. Stay tuned for information on how to view the film!
The cast of the Stella Adler Studio of Acting's production of 1984 has reconvened, lead by John Gould Rubin, and joined by Sarina Freda, to create a devised project together! John has built much of his career on devising, and as always I'm thrilled to be learning from him. We have paused our process for the spring semester, and are excited to continue working this coming summer.
So far, I am working on a writing an autobiographical segment for myself to perform in, acting in a piece written by Jami Belushi, acting in a piece written by Carolyn McLaughlin, and directing Diego Blanc Zoco's & Carolyn McLaughlin's pieces.
