Thanks for visiting my website. I just completed my MFA in Acting at the University of Virginia and am auditioning for theatre and film work. I am moving back to New York this August!
I've spent my last semester getting certified in knife combat (which along with my previous passes in rapier/dagger and unarmed makes me an Actor Combatant with the SAFD); working on Hypatia in Shaw’s Misalliance, and Nina in Aaron Posner's Stupid F#@king Bird in Acting class; and playing Rona in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
