Since earning my BFA from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, I've worked as a performer, director, producer, & educator. I've been honored to assist director Brad Raimondo of The Dreamscape Theatre on several projects (Pete RexThe Improbable Fall, Rise, & Fall of John LawIn Fields Where They Lay). I'm also the developing director for the new musical She Said  by Lily Ali-Oshatz. Currently, I'm directing Spring Awakening for the Secret Theatre in Long Island City opening March 7th, 2019!


While living in Chicago, I directed Windy City Music Theater's The Sound of Music and Narnia. I also managed the house for Porchlight Music Theatre's regional premiere of SideShow at Stage 773 (nominated for 4 Jeff Awards).


As a teaching artist with Kids Creative, I collaborated on a hip-hop musical adaptation of the short story "All Summer in a Day" by Ray Bradbury at P.S. 191. I also spearheaded the Apprenticeship program and facilitated devised work focusing on LGBTQ issues at the Coalition High School for Social Change. I've also taught classes at Hudson Guild and directed several children's shows at the White Plains Performing Arts Center​. 


I'm a member of the new Paramount Hudson Valley Theatre Company and a Musical Theatre Factory affiliated artist. I grew up in Phoenix, AZ and my first role ever was "Dish #7" in Beauty & The Beast when I was five. You can watch, listen, and read more below.
