Bio

Born and raised in Wine Country California, with a crazy, loud, wonderful family all involved in Arts, Medicine, and Education. I trained in classical ballet at Marin Dance Theatre (as well as contemporary, jazz, and tap), concurrently, training in acting, singing and music (Piano, Guitar, Ukulele, Banjo, Cajon, Harp, Fiddle, Clarinet, and the Triangle to name a few). Since 2011, I've also had the privilege of being an Ambassador of the Arts of the Phred Phoundation. 

I attended The School of Theatre And Dance at East Carolina University, earning my Bachelors of Fine Arts Degree in Musical Theatre,  including a two year Sanford Meisner Acting Training program. I was the original company Choreographer for 5th Street Players for including to 2016 production of Spring Awakening, and later was the Choreographer for the ECU's Fall 2016 Mainstage production of Medea

August 2016, I was one of the lucky twenty-four dancers chosen to train at Jacob's Pillow Musical Theatre/Jazz Dance Intensive under the direction of Chet Walker. The Pillow brought my technique to the next level, as I immerse myself into the Fosse style of dance. 

I've been a singer/songwriter since I was a kid, but recently put my composer and lyricist skills to the test, and created the full length musical: Velvet Over Steel.
