Also Available Now:
I was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri, where I played a lot of violin as a kid and then got more into choir and theater as a teen.
I went to Rice University, where I majored in Asian Studies (Chinese Culture, History and Language, magna cum laude), did a LOT of campus theater, and was even granted special permission by The Shepherd School of Music voice faculty to take Vocal/Opera Performance major classes.
Leaning towards a "practical" career in the arts, I went to the UC Berkeley School of Law and became an entertainment lawyer in S.F. (briefly).
I was having WAY more fun doing theater on the side, started doing on-camera and print work too, and even joined AEA & SAG-AFTRA.
So I decided to fully go for it, and went to The Boston Conservatory (at Berklee) where I obtained a Master's Degree in Musical Theater.
Now I live in NYC, and am having the time of my life doing musicals and plays, film and TV, commercials, voiceovers, modeling and hand modeling!
I still play the violin every now and then.
I also love cooking and all things food-related.
