Hello there, and thanks for stopping by my website. I'm an actor currently living in Los Angeles, CA.
In 2009, I received Bachelor of Science degree in Theater Studies with an emphasis in Performance from Northern Arizona University. I have worked with many reputable acting coaches over the past 10 or so years including Kathryn Gately (who studied directly under Sanford Meisner for many years), John Rosenfeld, Annie Grindlay, Jana Lee Hamblin, and Lindsay Frame. I am currently on the Core Track at The Groundlings and loving every second of it.
Some of my credits include a guest star role on NBC's Grimm and a lead role in the new feature film, Sex Weather, which has been distributed world-wide by Breaking Glass Pictures and also played in select movie theaters in Los Angeles and Portland, Oregon in late 2018. You can watch it now on Amazon Prime and Google Play. (You can check out some of my other work on my “Projects” page)
Acting isn’t my only passion, however. I LOVE to sing…everything from show tunes to Elton John and Panic at the Disco. I will always be your karaoke buddy. I enjoy being out in nature, whether it be camping, hiking, climbing, or just sitting on the beach and watching the waves - especially since moving to California! I also really like curling up with a good book and a nice cup of tea, and I have a somewhat secret fondness for classic video games. I take pride in the fact that I can beat Super Mario Bros in 14 minutes (I know you’re impressed). I work very hard and will always put my best foot forward, but I also try to not take myself too seriously. I love making people laugh, and I absolutely love to travel, so please feel free to contact me about non-local projects.
I feel most alive when I am working on my craft. For me, acting is more than just a job or an art form. It is one of the most brave journeys one can embark upon. It creates a life structured around empathy. What better way to understand someone than to actually put yourself in their shoes and feel what they feel, experience what they experience? It’s not always easy or fun, and like all important endeavors, I don’t think it should be. What keeps me coming back time after time, through all the rejection and struggle that inevitably comes with this career, is the fact that no matter what the role, I always come out the other side having learned a little more about what it means to be human, and I consider that to be an incredible gift.
