Actor. Singer. Theatre Maker.
She /Her /Hers.
I’m an actor currently based in New York City. I'm originally from West Bloomfield, Michigan or a town that's a 30 minute drive from Detroit. My coming of age included playing in the woods, listening to Motown music, watching way too much Nick at Night, and post-show cast parties. My love for singing and performing led me to voice lessons where I discovered a passion for opera and classical voice. I spent two summers studying vocal arts and opera at Interlochen Arts Camp. I then went to Interlochen Arts Academy to study theatre.
I moved to New York City to attend Fordham University's Theatre Program where I received a BA in Acting. I also had the opportunity to spend a semester at The Moscow Art Theatre through the National Theatre Institute and a summer in Berlin studying devised theatre through Bard College.
I've had the pleasure of performing at Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, The Metropolitan Opera House, Eugene O’Neill Cabaret Conference, Sun Valley Shakespeare Festival, The Fresh Fruit Festival, Feast Under St. Marks and been apart of various projects in development. I'm also a volunteer at The 52nd Street Project, a group fitness instructor, and a teaching artist with the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival.

Prior to our COVID-19 shutdown, I was working as an actor at the Metropolitan Opera in Michael Mayer's La Traviata, named an NY Times Critic's Pick, and getting ready to leave NYC for a regional theatre contract. While opportunities have been lost due to these unforeseen times, I've been using this time to collaborate with friends via Zoom, volunteer remotely with the 52nd Street Project, hangout with my family in Michigan, teach virtual fitness classes, play the ukulele and watch all the teen love stories Netflix has to offer. I've also been reflecting on how I can contribute to what I hope will be a more equitable American Theatre.
I recently completed a playwriting class taught by Tasha Gordon-Solmon at ESPA and had a piece published on Annabel Hope's October Quarantity:
