I am a great lover of theatre and am a graduate of the Studio Theatre acting Conservatory in Washington D.C. I also have had numerous jobs in the arts and customer service. Thus, a sense of fun, a deep appreciation for culture, and an interest in making genuine and diverse human connections informs all of my work. I also have been writing poetry since I was eight years old, so I have a true knack for working with words.
