Hello! I received a Bachelors of Science in Communication from Northwestern University, concentrating in Theatre and Business.

I graduated with honors in playwriting, receiving the 2020 Agnes Nixon Playwriting award for my play Sorry for giving a knife to the party but in fairness we're way too old for y'all to be renting a bounce house.

My dual studies in fine arts and business, and experience in production and marketing, led me to my first role, Development Executive at Modern Tropics Media.

At the same time, I was named a finalist for the 2021 Warner Bros. Television Actors in Training Program, and was a nominee for the ABC Digital Talent Search.

In my free time, I perform standup comedy, and have been booked across the country by colleges such as George Washington University and the University of California - Santa Barbara. I currently produce a monthly comedy-variety show in LA, "Chicago 10's Comedy."

I have co-created"Using Protection Web Series" which was an official 2022 Selection by SeriesFest. Check out some more work on my page!

I am currently represented by Canopy Media Partners.
