MY STORY

In Essence


The creative realm is my favorite play space ... and I am blessed to work in this realm. Exploring new dynamic characters while immersed in the collaborative process with my fellow creatives fuels me at the deepest of levels... Yet my greatest aspiration is to be a part of films that also fuel audiences at this level, allowing metamorphosis to unfold through the profound vibration of storytelling.

"Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul.
Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal."

In Time

By birth, I'm a Pennsylvanian... but my real roots formed in a small Northern California town called Chico. I grew up in theater, from plays in my living room to plays on the stage... but when I hit college, I chose the uncommon path for an artist. Earning a BA in psychology and a Masters degree in Social Work, I dabbled in the corporate world and was a social worker specializing in addiction.  These chapters of my life were immensely enriching, humbling and have since offered me fertile experiences to draw upon in my acting craft. 

 

Since arriving in Los Angeles, I've delved into a broad assortment of films in front of the camera... from the comedy of Tim Timmerman to the horrors of Cabin Fever 2 and many in between.  I've also traversed the world of television on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., The Orville, Day 5, StartUp, Castle, Finding Carter, and more you'll see on my resume page.  I too have found great joy in producing 3 feature films and my greatest new love, screenwriting upon whichI will soon embark on my directorial debut!  I'm so grateful to be playing in the creativity of what I love...and everyday, I count my lucky stars!   

When I'm not filming, I keep my heart fulfilled with the One World Foundation where we work closely with a children's home in Thailand and with our scholarship fund in the Phillippines.
