Actor. Singer. Video Editor.
WHO I AM.
I am a performer/content creator. Digging a little deeper? I am an actor that studies the voice intently - all the ins and outs.
I am an Apple Certified Video Editor that is fascinated on how to connect the pieces of a media-oriented puzzle. I am a musician that is transfixed on the theory of why melodies and harmonies move in certain ways. I am an activist for Mental Health Awareness. I am never willing to stop learning or growing towards a better version of me.
I am currently in my final semester as a Musical Theatre undergraduate. During my college career, I have performed in over ten different productions. I received two Kennedy Center Nominations for my performances in two Main Stage musicals (Baker's Wife in Into the Woods and Paulette in Legally Blonde). In 2012, I received the Blumey Award for "Best Actress in a Musical" for my portrayal of Belle in Beauty and the Beast. Upon receiving this award, I was able to train with 59 other actors from across the country at the National High School Musical Theatre Awards in New York City. Following this intensive training, we performed a variety of musical numbers on a Broadway stage. I am grateful for each of these opportunities in my journey as a performer.
When I was sixteen, I was Apple-certified in Final Cut Pro video editing. Ever since, I have loved every aspect of post-production within media. I was a teaching assistant for Final Cut Pro editing as well. This opportunity gave me the chance to help others expand their video editing skills while also allowing me to develop a deeper understanding of editing software. While I have worked on a variety of film projects, I am most passionate about editing music videos and creative content for YouTube (vlogs, entertainment, gaming, etc.)
