When I was six years old my mom took me to see a professional production of "Oliver." At intermission I turned to her and said, “Why are all the orphans boys? I want to play an orphan!” And so it began. I spent my childhood listening to, and memorizing, Broadway cast albums and watching movie musicals. My first role was the lead in the 3rd grade play about tooth decay. I'm pretty sure I got the part because I could be heard at the back of the classroom. Years later I was fortunate to train at Trinity Rep Conservatory with phenomenal acting, directing, voice, movement, and dance teachers.
After drama school I worked in NY and LA. A move to DC, for love, brought me to a remarkably talented community of actors and produced some of my proudest theatrical experiences. Helen Dukas, Albert Einstein’s housekeeper/secretary, in the World Premier of Marc Acito’s "The Secrets of the Universe (and other songs)" directed by Helen Murray at The Hub Theatre. Pam, a wife and mother struggling with betrayal by her husband and teenage daughter, in "Oblivion," by Carly Mensch, directed by Chris Goodrich at Unexpected Stage Co. I'm blessed to go where opportunities take me and am grateful to work with theatres, filmmakers, and VO producers around the country.
