Growing up in a small, Upstate NY town where there are more cows than people, I quickly learned that if I wanted to do something I had to make it happen. Some may say opportunities are scarce in more rural areas, away from the city's hustle and bustle, but where some see an empty field, I see an open canvas. Throughout my life, I have worked hard to make my own opportunities in order to achieve my goals. My biggest goal for a long time was to move to NYC to pursue my greatest passion, acting. Now that I am here I am ready to take the world by storm.
My mother has always said I was a "ham", but my favorite part of acting doesn't lie solely in performing (although it is a major plus). I love having the opportunity to explore humanity through living in someone else's shoes. Additionally, acting has provided me with a community to cultivate my creativity onstage and off. The people I have met along the way not only support me, but inspire me to be a better artist and a better person. I hope I'll be able to do the same for others. I believe in leading with both kindness and tenacity, and put my whole heart into all my endeavors.
I am a creative through and through. When I'm not acting, I'm painting or sculpting or starting another crazy diy project. I love to explore my environment and find new ways of looking at the world. I hope that throughout my life I maintain the ability to inspire and be inspired, experiencing life to the fullest through a creative lens.
