Originally from North Carolina, I moved to NYC in 2011 to pursue a career in the arts. I was trained by Broadway actor Hal Davis and several local (but brilliant) directors and performers from the North Carolina area. I have worked in every department of the theatre and several departments in the film and tv world. I’ve been a Broadway stagehand and a professional actor, I’ve directed short films and even taught my colleges improv program while still an undergrad student. For 17 years my life has been centered around the performing arts. 3 years of musical theatre training, multiple years of film and video training, improv training that has led to over 200 paid performances, and a number of niche performing arts training (including professional wrestling training) led to me to a point where I felt comfortable enough in my knowledge of what I had learned to begin to sharing and educating other, less experienced people. I spent the last 3 years giving private lessons that has seen significant growth from those I’ve tutored. I love the intellectual complexities of our business as much as I love the sheer fun of pretending and living a few moments as if I’m someone else. I specialize in character acting, the type where you walk, talk, and react different then your core self. I also find it very important to stay in touch with your own personal humanity in the process of pretending to be others. You’re a wonderful person and it would be a shame to lose you and the things that make you special to fiction.
Together we can master this complicated craft and make you a director’s best friend!
