Performing Arts

Actor, Theater Maker, Creative Goofball. I'm a classically trained actor, specializing in bringing the specificity/physicality of characters to life. I love new plays, dramadies, and contemporary musicals. I excel in finding the humor in the vulnerability of life & love playing characters who are trying to find their way. I am a very physical actor who enjoys taking on challenges & exploring all there is to learn about a script & creative conception. I've trained globally & take these influences into my work.
