Once Upon a Time...
There was a little girl who loved to read stories and play dress-up, who had no idea what she wanted to be when she grew up. Living just one life wasn't enough, so she became an actor, hoping to experience as many stories as possible in the lifetime she'd been given.

Born & raised outside of Philadelphia, I went to college in Baltimore, receiving a summa cum laude B.A. with a double-major in Theatre and English from Towson University.
After singing the national anthem at my college graduation, I stayed in the Baltimore/D.C. area for a bit, culminating in a year with The American Shakespeare Center, performing Midsummer, Caesar, and Cyrano de Bergerac in repertory on the road and in residence at Blackfriars in Staunton, VA.
Christmas 2007 brought my move to New York and led to performances in New York City, from outdoor Shakespeare to new musicals. I've also become involved with the world of cabaret and jazz, with a solo World War II Show and repeat engagements as a guest singer with Kathryn Allyn at Tomi Jazz.
Living in New York has also brought on-camera opportunities, including medical industrials, short films, and some tv and commercial work.
Outside of performing, I enjoy reading, sampling super-high-SPF sunscreens, and writing real letters. Much to my surprise, I've also become a runner, completing a New Year's Eve 5k and the Women's Health sponsored Run10Feed10 10k for a few years.
