I've loved performing since I was a child. I always enjoyed becoming another character. I would pretend I was a singer, a choreographer, and a Broadway star. And so far, I've accomplished two of those three dreams!
Following my ambitions, I attended Longwood University and attained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Theatre. I studied performance, and also enjoyed working in Wardrobe, Wig and Makeup. I graduated with a minor in Communications with a specialty in Event Planning and Public Relations. I have experienced many different sides of this career field, and I am continuously working in new ones with each new project or job.
My current goals are to continue working on my skills (and discover new ones) by working on new shows and projects, and to continue finding new avenues of work that can improve my skills in the future.
