Theater holds tremendous power. It is a way of telling stories that long to be told--and can be told effectively by no other medium. I have always been enthralled by the profound ability theater has to tell these stories of the human experience in wholly unique and ways. I believe that theater, more than any other form of art, can help us ask what it truly means to be human. 

Though I did not grow up involved in theater, I discovered it in high school I immediately knew it was my calling and the only thing I could envision myself pursuing.  Whether involved in performance or production, theater is where I feel like my truest self--whole and complete by the work of Jesus Christ. Theater can teach so much about ourselves, others, and the world. And it is for those reasons that I have dedicated myself to honing my craft with passion and diligence.

While my roots in theater began on stage as an actor, I look forward to continuing in developing my skills as a Stage Manager and a Director. I am currently a student at Biola university in Los Angeles where I am studying Theatre and Great Books.
