I was raised in New Orleans where I grew up training as an Olympic-track gymnast. As I reached teenhood, I shifted my focus to competitive-league soccer before heading out to Seattle for college where I found acting. After I graduated, I moved to NYC to train further and earned my MFA from The New School for Drama. There, I studied under some phenomenal teachers: Kathleen Chalfant, Peter Jay Fernandez, Cotter Smith, David Chambers, Joe Grifasi, Erica Fae and many more. After graduating, I continued to study under Dianne Weist, Erica Jensen, Maria Dizzia, and with the Bob Krakower technique.
After a decade in New York, I made the move out west and I now happily live in Portland, OR where I continue to work bi-coastally in film, tv, and theatre.
As a gender non-conforming actor, I'm consistently cast in roles written about folks who are exploring the spectrum of gender. Much of my recent work reflects that, and the characters I'm called in for are people who are fighting to be seen, heard, and taken seriously in situations where those things seem impossible.
