I am originally from New York City and I have always loved theater.I found joy in the art at a young age constantly impersonating characters or creating new ones to play. When I first starting performing I did Shakespeare and heavily studied classical theater. However, as I grew older I dived deeper into the art and power a performer has to change themselves and others. I started doing political theater and spoken word towards the end of high school. This gave me the ability to do something I love while, conveying important messages to my audience. This taught me another aspect of theater, and how artists have the incredible gift of empathizing with so many different characters that relate to real people, and we as actors get to share their stories. So, as an actor I know look for shows that I feel can truly resonate with audiences while, I continue to develop political theater pieces.
