About

When I was five years old, I witnessed a life changing piece of theater - my cousin's grade school production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. My cousin sang in the chorus, and to be honest, I really don't remember much about that particular production. But it was one of my first experiences of live theater, and the music stuck with me. As a result, my mother endured many car rides with my twin brother and I listening to the cast recording and singing the songs over and over again. After memorizing all the words to the show, my cousin, brother, and I decided to stage our own production in our Grandma's living room. Having confidence in my abilities, I decided that I should play Joseph (my brother was cast as "Some of the Main Parts" and my cousin as "The Rest of the Main Parts"). Thus began my theatrical career.

I went on to perform in school shows, a few more living room productions, and eventually I ended up pursuing a B.A. in Theater from Fairleigh Dickinson University. At FDU I was able to perform in multiple productions and serve as a Teaching Assistant. I also had the wonderful opportunity to study Shakespeare in England for a semester.

I currently reside in New Jersey and participate in theater and short films throughout the tri-state area. I try every day to live up to the expectations of my five-year-old self.
