I was born and raised off the Chesapeake in the small port-town of Williamsburg, VA. Being an average public school kid and immediate cinephile, I was inspired very early in my life to emulate my storytelling heroes, usually being Hollywood directors from the 70s or 80s. Though not a typical path for most kids from Williamsburg, VA, I've been lucky to gain support from loved ones to help me train, focus, and educate myself thoroughly about the entertainment world. This was done by extensively performing in high school/community theatre productions (including my first summer-stock gig in Cortland, NY when I was 17), writing original plays/sketches/screenplays, making short student-films, and studying any resource of Film/TV/Theatre I could get my hands on.
In 2019, I was accepted into the Carnegie Mellon University School of Drama and studied as a BFA acting major with an additional film minor at the Dietrich School. Simultaneous with my training as a performer, I spent many hours either expanding my work as a screenwriter, aiding productions of fellow classmates, experimenting with my own work as a rookie filmmaker, and searching for a network/mentorship from professionals currently working in the industry. Summer of 2022, at age 21, I even had the opportunity to learn and work professionally as the director's assistant to Patrick Wilson on his directorial debut: Blumhouse's "Insidious: Fear the Dark."
I'm a young, upcoming storyteller looking to work consistently and ambitiously in the ever-changing entertainment world! I strive to wear all hats: writer, producer, director, and/or actor, in either the projects of storytellers I admire, or the projects of my own. Material that I'm strongest with: stories (usually comedic) that dissect strong political and/or satirical topics, stories that creatively play with and defy genre (Ex: Horror), or fun, creative comedies.
I'll do anything in this industry to get myself in a writer's room, stage, or set. The simple act of supporting and collaborating on stories will keep me earnestly moving forward through the rest of my career. If all goes well, I even dream to one day open my own production studio to invest in other "rookie" storytellers to begin their own, ambitious paths in this business.
