"The misery with them all was, clearly, that they sought to interfere, for good, in human matters, and had the lost the power forever." - Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol.
Performing arts have been used throughout the human history to influence, to inspire and to raise awareness through the art of entertainment. This is my goal. As an actor, I am a vessel that carries the writer's message to the population and it is my responsibility to convey these words respectfully. I seek to challenge ideas, I work to provoke thought, I aim to bring to life a character that's present and real.
Being raised in the theatre industry over a period of ten years, I have absorbed a great passion for the performing arts and hold a respect for the discipline required to present a well-rounded performance. Over the years, I have gained an understanding of the Theatre, filling roles as BackStage Crew, ASM, FOH, and of course Actor. During my final years studying at the Hunter School of Performing Arts, majoring in Drama and Entertainment Industry, it was decided to further continue my studies and pursue my love for storytelling at AFTT. At AFTT, I found a personal drive and an awareness that I didn't quite understand before. In realization, I admire acting for the magic it brings in creating a spontaneous attachment to a distant reality, a reality from a story, and a story from an idea.
Multiple roles that I have been privileged to perform include Oriel Lamb in CLOUD STREET directed by Glen Hamilton, Regan in KING LEAR directed by Sean O'Riordan, and Nia in IMAGE OF AN UNKNOWN YOUNG WOMAN directed by Kim Hardwick.
Although most of my experience lays on the stage, I am filled with courage to expand and bring the truth to characters on the screen.
