I am a graduate of Fordham University with a BA in Theater Performance and English. My theatrical experience encompasses both the artistic and educational. As an artist, I have worked in states as far north as Maine and in our home state of NJ. My repertoire of performances includes off Broadway with the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra, at the prestigious Shakespeare Theater of NJ, and in several independent films. I have also worked on the technical end of theater in a props warehouse, as well as all facets of stage crew in many productions and as a production assistant on a Netflix television show.
My experience as an educator includes being a teaching artist with McCarter Theater and the Shakespeare Theater of NJ and teaching acting to students ages 5-17 in New York City and Maine. I am also an audiobook narrator and producer.
