I took an interest in performing and acting when I was a kid.  That interest quickly transformed into a passion as I began performing in elementary school and church.  This passion led me to study acting at The Playhouse in the Park where I began learning the basics of performing.  I then was signed to an agency and started a more vigorous training process which led to auditioning for roles.  I transferred to a different agency where I booked some commercial spots and two short films.  I graduated with a Focus on Modern Theatre and Drama at Miami University where I studied the world of improv and the difference between stage acting and acting in front of a camera.  I look forward to sharing the exciting, versatile, sometimes challenging, but always FUN world of acting and performing with you all.
