I am a 23-year-old native of West Hills, California, a northern suburb of Los Angeles located in the San Fernando Valley. That being said, I grew up a Laker fan until 2009 when Blake Griffin was drafted to the Clippers and my allegiance was forever changed (for the better).
Performing arts and sports have dominated my interests since as long as I can remember. A typical day growing up was soccer, basketball, or baseball practice in the afternoon followed by rehearsal for whichever show was in production at our local community theater group, Golden Performing Arts.
My dual interest in the performing arts and sports continued into high school where I played soccer the first three years, while also participating in Chaminade High School's drama club.
Inspired by the process of a production of Jason Robert Brown's musical Parade (in which I played Leo Frank), I decided to fully focus my efforts on musical theater my senior year of high school and stopped kicking a soccer ball.
Flash forward and I am now a graduate of Texas State University San Marcos, with a BFA in Musical Theater under the tutelage of Director Kaitlin Hopkins. I could not be happier in my decision to attend this University and am looking forward to putting my training to use.
My support group at home is strong with parents and an older brother and sister who have shown me unconditional love and support in everything that I do.
