I'm a military brat born and raised in Germany, and I currently live in the city of the world, New York. I've always wanted to live in NY, so when I received a scholarship to study at New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts, I quickly accepted. After two years of training, I was hired straight out of school by Chicago City Limits Improv troupe. My improv skills opened doors for me in the theater world, booking plays such as Syncing Ink (The Public/ The Flea), A Christmas Carol (Tony Award winning McCarter Theater), To Kill a Mockingbird (Queens Theater), and A Raisin in the Sun (Indiana Rep./ Syracuse Stages).


Once I received representation I was quickly propelled into television doing shows such as, but not limited to The Get Down (Netflix), Blue Bloods (CBS), Shades of Blue (NBC), NCIS: NOLA (CBS), and many other projects.

In addition to my acting, I am also owner of my production company, "Inward Productions." I also co-own "Foresee Film Productions" that has created award-winning short films.


Acting, Dancing, writing, and producing is what I love to do and my contribution to the world. Storytelling brings me joy and I submerge myself in whatever story I am blessed to be a part of.
