Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I began working with artists, creative directors, animators, and filmmakers at the Cleveland Institute of Music. There I studied in a consortium program that included the sister campuses at the Institute of Art and Case Western Reserve University and study-abroad and professional immersion residencies. Through this work, I fell in love with storytelling in earnest and, from film festivals, campaigns, and international writing competitions to the video village in Todd Haynes' picture Carol. I have immersed myself in different facets of narrative, political outreach, and creative leadership ever since. As a performer, public speaker, and voice-over artist, I was trained in the British acting tradition in Bristol, England, alongside years of coaching in New York City and Princeton with Dr. Ruth Kulerman, an actress and poetic lecturer with a very select studio of artists, fiction writers, journalists, and performers alike. Eventually, I took to the road, learning new skills and collecting (and producing) new ideas through a breadth of mediums. From commercial development, screenwriting, reporting, and live performance, to corporate lecturing and leading grassroots political action campaigns for Presidential candidates. I have been working to tell meaningful stories for a decade, with a mission-bound sense of purpose. I've worked with some of the best names in entertainment, news, advertising, and communications. I have learned how to run a tight ship, roll with the punches, and offer intuitive solutions to maintain fresh narratives.

Interesting Factoid

I've been in two Academy Award-nominated pictures, sang at Carnegie Hall when I was 17, survived a plane crash and spent half a year teaching horseback riding homeless LGBTQ youth.
