I'm from Temple, Texas, a place where getting a Target and an Olive Garden was a big deal when it happened about ten years ago.
I have slowly been making my way up the east coast since I graduated as an
IB student, and occasionally get a pang for wide open spaces.
I went to college at Emory University, where I studied playwriting and received a BBA with concentrations in Arts Management and Marketing at Goizueta Business School.
After graduating, I spent a few years at the Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, working as an Artistic Support Associate with Jody Feldman and Celise Kalke - two of the best mentors I could have ever hoped for, and women who continue to inspire me to this day.
I performed at various theatres around Atlanta, and produced my own work through a company I co-founded called Catalyst Arts ATL. And after taking many Marta buses across town to do acting projects at very little pay, I decided to primarily focus on acting for theatre, and for TV/Film.
I recently completed Fiasco Theater's inaugural 6 week conservatory program, and I am also an alumni of the acting apprenticeship at
Actors Theatre of Louisville.
I have currently finished auditioning for many MFA programs, and I am writing a mockumentary piece about a seance (inspired by a true story) and a dark comedy about sex education in Texas, while working to produce a TV pilot and a couple of plays in refreshing ways.
I live in NYC, but still have strong ties to Atlanta, so I'd love to connect in either of those wonderful communities, or any place in-between.
