about me

I am a Chicago-based actor, originally from southeast Michigan. I am a proud alumni of Oakland University with a BFA in Acting. 

I love to tell stories that explore humanity through any avenue-- comedy or drama, classical or contemporary, even mime. 

I have a deep love and appreciation for both classical text and clowning that started from the moment I saw Catherine Tate and David Tennant in Much Ado About Nothing. Since then, I have wanted to share a similar feeling of excitement and joy with others through my work. 

I was proudly a Professional Idiot with Delirio del'Arte for several years, where I learned how to juggle, stilt walk, and be an absolute fool. There's nothing like hearing a bad joke that makes you groan, and boy do I have a ton!

My free time is spent playing video games with my friends or learning the dance to the Kpop song I can't get out of my head.
