My mom always told me “find what you love to do, and figure out a way to make it your career,” so becoming a professional physical performer was the only thing that made sense to me. Growing up, I gave countless recitals on the landing of the staircase, ruined many pieces of furniture, using it as my gymnastics equipment, and “walked the runway” of the hallway, modeling new clothes while my dad held a flashlight as a spotlight.
These days, I thrive on merging my love of singing, theatre, and gymnastics into the single art form of physical theatre. I’ve graduated from the venue of my childhood home to perform on stages across America, and Europe. I love bringing life to new work, and collaborating in an ensemble setting. Some of my favorite roles include Dianne in 2 ANXIOUS BISEXUALS, John Webster in SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE, Nellie Forbush in SOUTH PACIFIC, and Despina in COSI FAN TUTTE.
I am a proud Temple University alumna, where I got my BM in Classical Vocal Performance, while studying acting with Brandon McShaffrey, and competing on Temple’s Club Gymnastics Team. I am a life-long student, and practice gymnastics at Philly inMovement, study acrobatics and aerials at the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts, and The Actors Gymnasium, voice with Deric Rosenblatt at Vocal Power LLC, and acting with Ben Mathes at Crash Acting.
When I am not performing or practicing, I coach the gymnastics team and preteam at Philly inMovement, and teach voice and acting for my own studio, and at Mister Johns Music. I am also the founder of The Simply Enough Project and the Spreading Kindness Rocks movement. Visit those pages on my website for more details!
