Welcome to My Website!

 I am a singer, actor, and dancer based in New York City. I grew up in a small town in New Jersey with a passion for acting and singing that nothing could curb. My biggest fans (my parents!) signed me up for masterclasses with professionals such as Meri Sugarman and Telsey & Company by the time I was in middle school. They also drove me from audition to audition for community theatres before I had my license; Because of their endless support, I was able to play roles such as Janet in The Rocky Horror Show and Fantine in Les Miserables. I owe my beginnings all to them!

 

 

My college education was heavily based in stage performance. As a student at Marymount Manhattan College, I was able to perform on stage, back stage, and behind the camera. I learned from professionals in the field, including Ed Kresley, Tommy Scrivens, and Ann Hamilton. Marymount provided me with extensive training in Jazz and Tap dance by taking lessons every morning, five days a week. I have also taken voice lessons for over 10 years with teachers such as Ron Sharpe, Barbra Russell, and Matthew Deming.

 

I also love learning and expanding my horizons; My hard work added my name on the Dean's List every semester at Marymount. By graduation in May of 2020, I achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.87! I graduated with a B.A. in Theatre Performance with a minor/concentration in Musical Theatre.

My college training earned me roles in MMC's Mainstage productions such as Bring It On: The Musical (Campbell Davis) and Parade (Sally Slaton). Additionally, MMC's Poor Theatre Club directed Gruesome Playground Injuries and offered me the role of Kayleen.

 

During this pandemic, it has been hard for so many of us to create and connect to the world with theatre, so I have been actively finding other outlets to occupy my time. I was lucky enough to perform in a COVID-regulated short film in November of 2020, which is currently in post-production. I also recently landed a guest star role in a season 6 episode of Bull starring Michael Weatherly. The episode is set to air November 11th of 2021 on CBS.

 

I hope to learn and experience everything performing has to offer. My childhood dream has always been to voice a Disney Princess, but in recent years I've settled for any Disney character! My biggest dream, though, is performing on a Broadway stage. My career has started to turn to film, as well! My dreams are endless, but I believe my appetite for learning make anything possible!
