Welcome to my blog!

First, a little about me…

I’m an actress pursuing her career in New York City. I got my professional start in Kindergarden when I danced with the American Repertory Ballet Company in Princeton, NJ – I performed in the Nutcracker every year until I was 12.  However, I really got my start at home – my sister and I would act out movies in our living room, put on shows for our family – both live and on camera! Since then I’ve always known that I just needed to perform.

Fast forward a bunch of years, and here I am!! While I love performing on stage, on-camera work is my focus. Lately, I’ve been working primarily on short films and web-based commercials.

My goal is to work on period pieces – anything from the 1920s-1960s is my sweet spot. My latest project, Kissed by Inspiration, is a short film set in the 1960s. The movie should be finished in about a month, and I will be sure to share it with you when its complete!
