I believe in the transformative power of the arts to humanize complex global issues. 

I'm a non-equity actor, singer, dancer, musical theater performer, and teaching artist in D.C. I recently played ICHABOD in ICHABOD: THE LEGEND OF SLEEPY HOLLOW, an original musical at Creative Cauldron this past October. Over the summer, I played MARCO in HIGHER for the Capital Fringe Festival and TRINCULO in THE TEMPEST for GrassrootsShakespeare DC. Last March, I made it to the Final Four in Monologue Madness DC, an acting competition of over 200 actors.

I graduated from Georgetown with a government degree and theater minor in December of 2021, and I've found a home for this passion at the Lab for Performance and Politics. I work as a Project Associate for their award-winning In Your Shoes Program, a theatrical project that brings together intergenerational participants to engage in dialogue about critical issues such as race, political polarization, memory, and identity. I am currently administering and co-teaching two In Your Shoes projects, one in collaboration with Georgetown's Lannan Center for Poetics and Social Practice, and the other in collaboration with Georgetown's Center for US-China Dialogue. I also work as a teaching artist at Young Playwrights Theater, and I co-taught the introductory acting course at Georgetown University's Department of Performing Arts last Spring.
