No one knows what you're capable of better than you. Don't waste time trying to convince people who don't get it. Nurture relationships with people who DO.

|ACTING|

I've always had a flair for the dramatics. 

At six years old, I stormed into the kitchen and demanded my Mom put me on TV. 

Years later, I got to work opposite Amy Poehler on NBC's Parks and Recreation. 

Life's got a funny way of handing us what we want & I can't wait to see what's next!


|DIRECTING|

Mama's Boys-SMALL2.jpg

Directing is something I actively ran away from. After an awful experience in college when given an assignment to direct a group of peers I had only just met, I steered clear of the position. Though I had been approached a number of times throughout my career to do it - I never thought the person asking was being serious and I always deflected the attention. However, after getting a taste while filming my short Mama's Boys, I truly can't WAIT to do it again. 


|WRITING|

Writing kind of snuck up on me. Yet at the same time, it was always there.

We didn't have a drama club in my grammar school. So instead of playing sports, I absorbed myself in my notebook - scribbling down dialogue. Having never read a screenplay before, by thirteen, I completed five. 

For the longest time, I assumed writing was the creative outlet I had to settle for because of the lack of theatrical productions in my neighborhood - but now it's just a part of me.

Okay... this one... If I could name the least likely best friend I ever thought I'd have in this career, it'd be this guy!

Producing is b*tch. :) There's really no other way around it. It's a lot of work that goes unnoticed unless something's a hit. 

But I will say:  It's the most empowering thing I've ever done for my career. 

Ever. 

Every actor. Every writer. Every creative... should produce. 


|CHOREOGRAPHING|

Don't let this picture fool you. I spent the better part of my childhood bursting into tears for no apparent reason, and this dance class was no exception.

Miraculously, I pulled it together for the showcase (evidenced by the picture) - But this made my transition to choreographer all the more confusing to... well, everyone.

For about ten years, I freestyled in my room to whatever Z100 played on the radio. Turns out, that was all the training I needed.
