Stories are powerful. They can teach, heal, and connect people through shared struggles, celebrations, and experiences that make up the bittersweet complexity of life. Stories remind us we are not alone.
Ever since I was a child, I've had a passion for storytelling. As an only child, I know the feeling of loneliness and stories helped connect me with other people, worlds, and experiences.
Some of my fondest memories growing up are trips to Broadway musicals with my parents, watching films (sometimes on repeat), and plays that expanded my imagination both emotionally and intellectually. I laughed when characters successfully used humor to create a comedic commotion onstage, cried when movies had sad endings, and felt that intense feeling of hope and inspiration from movies that inspire me to tell my own stories.
I'm blessed with a supportive family who nurtured my love for the arts by allowing me to perform in plays and musicals as a teen. Today, I focus my energy on storytelling through film acting.
The first student (a point of immense pride!) at The Actors Lab Philly), I've found a safe and excellent space to grow the confidence required to tackle a variety of roles from upbeat to emotionally intense while building connections with colleagues in film in the shared pursuit of storytelling.
As a life-long learner of my craft, I look forward to future opportunities to expand my abilities and create new characters that challenge and excite. Ultimately, I remember the immense joy of soaking up stories as a young audience member, and I aspire to share bold and meaningful stories that inspire the feeling of connection with audiences.
