A B O U T   M E

Born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas, I currently live in Berea, Ohio, where I fight off pesky snowstorms on the quest to earn my BM in Music Theatre from Baldwin Wallace University.

Initially a pianist, my love for theatre stemmed from an ever present desire to keep growing and my passion for artistic collaboration. Out of my little piano bench came an actor, a singer, a dancer, a composer, and a music director--I can proudly say I've been pursuing all five concurrently for almost 10 years now.

It is my belief that theatre can be as powerful a tool as you make it, and all it takes to accomplish something important, historical, and magnificent is just a little bit of faith and a whole lot of passion.

While currently maintaining an active career as an actor and a music director, I am writing a new musical called Freedom Summer, which will receive a workshop in the spring of 2019.
