I spent the first ten years of my life in Chicago where I made my professional stage debut at six years old in the Goodman Theatre’s world premiere of Dollhouse, under the direction of Robert Falls. I was fortunate to work at many regional theaters including Marriott Lincolnshire and Theatre at the Center, as well as performing in 2 National Tours and the Original Broadway Company of Irving Berlin’s White Christmas.
I spent the next ten years of my life in Los Angeles, where I added a dozen National commercials, and film and television work to my resume. Some of my favorite appearances were in Criminal Minds, A Golden Christmas, and the recent release Vice. I continued my stage work starring in the title role of Annie, as well as the classics; Ah Wilderness, Summer and Smoke, and the musical Baby. I was one of the youngest performers ever to have a one-woman show which I performed in several venues in Los Angeles and Palm Springs. Since living in Los Angeles I have been very active in the Actor’s Fund Looking Ahead program, both as a member of the leadership council and a mentor, as well as being seated for the last 4 years on the SAG-AFTRA young performers committee.
I am a new resident of Manhattan, where I will probably spend the next 10 years of my life. I recently had the opportunity to film an episode of the upcoming Showtime series City On A Hill. On top of all of my work in theater film and television, I created a podcast called Artistic Beginnings with my brother! It’s an interview style podcast where we talk with creatives from all sides of the business about their artistic beginnings! You can listen now on all podcast platforms. Stay tuned to see what I’m up to next!
