I started acting at a very young age and continued throughout my professional studies. My formal education comes from Portland State University where I completed the advanced acting in modern and classical texts, movement for actors, and received a Bachelor of Music in Voice. My Masters comes from the Boston Conservatory where I was trained in voice, acting and movement.
I approach acting from a semi-method approach. I think it is important to internalize the character you are portraying in order to express them outwardly. We will study texts, proper vocal production, and work on freeing your mind and body with movement.
