Hi! My name is
I believe in the power of theatre to change the world. A well-acted play or musical makes the audience walk a mile in another person's shoes.
I have wanted to be a singer as long as I can remember. When I played my first part as narrator of my second grade Thanksgiving program, the theatre bug bit me, too. From that point forward, I have made it my goal to spend my life making theatre and music.
Now, I am privileged to work as a director, musician, actor, and educator. Helping others learn to express themselves creatively has been my greatest joy.
I am a pianist, singer, and actor, specializing in musical theatre and comedy. I have performed in operas and musicals in Maryland, New York, and Pennsylvania.
