About Me!

After seeing Cats for the first time in Kindergarten, decided that being on stage was what I wanted to do. True story: for career day, I dressed up as a cat and my teacher had to explain to the entire class (and their parents) that I didn’t want to be A cat but be IN Cats.

 

Fortunately, I grew up with the most supportive family in the world. And growing up so close to Manhattan allowed me the opportunity to start working towards my dream career earlier than most. Instead of the normal after school activities, mine was auditioning, voice lessons, and acting classes. When I was 8 years old, I went on my first professional Broadway audition and got my first Broadway show at 10. I was cast in the role of the Little Girl in the original production of Ragtime, opposite John Rubenstein and, later, Michael Rupert.

 

While I loved working, school was also very important to me and I decided to make that my priority. After high school, I attended New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, where I earned a BFA in Drama. While at Tisch, I studied at the Lee Strasberg Insitute for Theater and Film as well as Stonestreet Studios for Film and Televsion. I also spent a semester abroad in Shanghai, China studying Beijing Opera, Shakespeare, Chinese history and culture, in addition to Mandarin at the Shanghai Theater Academy.

In 2017, I started "Growing Up Broadway". What started as a one off cabaret, it had now grown into two editions of the show entitled Back to Before: Former Broadway Return to the Stage and a third show called Now and Then: Current and Former Broadway Kids Take the Stage, all at the famed Feinstein's/ 54 Below. The project is growing into something more than just a series of concerts and into a growing community of Broadway kids (past and present). For more information, be sure to visit the Growing Up Broadway website.

In short, I'm a true Long Island girl who loves books, shopping, pizza, all deserts, any true crime documentary, podcasts, Netflix, the Mets, Billy Joel, and last but definitely not least, the love of my life, my Newfoundland/ Poodle mix, Brady.
