Philadelphia, Pa.

I am an actress currently living and working in Philadelphia. As a child, I dreamed of being a "star" but my real love for the craft truly started when my father had the brilliant idea to enroll his very introverted pre-teen daughter in the theatre arts training program at the historic Freedom Theatre. It was there, under the tutelage of experienced artists such as Johnnie Hobbs Jr and Dr. Walter Dallas, that I found my voice. That's when I realized that theatre could change lives and I wanted to be a part of that.

I went on to study acting at Temple University. Thru the incredible network of artists I met during my years there, I was given the opportunity to work in some extraordinary productions in Philadelphia such as Hairspray at the Walnut Street Theatre. I was also given the chance to bring theatre into inner-city schools thru my employment with the Philadelphia Young Playwright organization.

I'm making my way thru this business the best way I know how, passionately and fearlessly.
