About Me

I harbor a deep love for performing classical texts as well as brand new plays. I am a frequent workshop actor with Clubbed Thumb, and was a finalist in the Shaw Festival's Monologue Jam (Canada). Since graduating in 2020, I have progressed into acting on screen in a variety of short film, commercial, as well as audio projects. Constantly craving new experiences, I strive to expose myself to an endless variety of opportunities. 

In my writing, I have been humbled with the opportunity to spend 2021-2023 as the Playwright Fellow at Central Square Theater (Boston). My passions lie in writing plays for younger audiences, collaborating in community engagement settings, and working with textual adaptation.

I hold a BFA in Theatre with Honors from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, as well as a Minor in the Business of Entertainment, Media, and Technology from New York University's Stern School of Business.

A dual-citizen with the United States and Canada, I work across North America.
