I was born (February 2nd yes I'm a groundhog baby) and raised in Southeastern Ohio. I got bit by the "acting bug" performing my first big role in high school as Kenickie in Grease. Fast forward years later I found myself studying music and theatre at Bowling Green State University (Go Falcons!) in cold and windy Bowling Green, Ohio.
After finishing grad school (I guess I liked studying) nothing made more sense than moving to NYC and "finding myself." I've lived in NYC for eight years and continue to "find myself." When I'm not auditioning or working I enjoy all things outdoors: hiking, swimming, skiing, and biking, and I really enjoy traveling. I'm an avid yogi and maintain a small private Reiki practice in NYC. I live in Astoria in NYC, where all the good food is.
My favorite food is Indian and Italian and my favorite thing to do in NYC is to find a new quiet spot where I can enjoy a good cup of coffee and a book (so rare these days). I'm an avid animal lover and live with a small beagle name Sam-Wise (Lord of the Rings anyone?) and a Pomeranian Chihuahua named Carl, or rather CARRRRRRRRRRRRL (Walking Dead Reference). I enjoy collecting original art and am inspired by artists of all kinds.
