Storytelling has always been at the crux of my life. Whether it was staying up reading Lord of the Rings by flashlight as a kid, transmuting emotions into bass kicks and cymbal crashes on my drum set as a teen, or acting to dissolve the self imposed limitations we all have when it comes to creating and experiencing a story - you could say I'm hooked!
I consider myself incredibly lucky to have found CHAS in the summer of 2019. It has truly given me a new lease on life to pursue this creative work professionally. Of course, it hasn't all been easy - 2020 has presented a host of issues to all of us. I'm grateful to be part of an environment at CHAS where we have been able to turn potential setbacks like social distancing in an acting class into new opportunities including learning about scriptwriting, self-producing, virtual auditions, and most importantly perseverance in the face of uncertainty.
I am currently located in Austin and planning a move to Los Angeles in July 2021. Seeking representation in both Austin and Los Angeles markets.
