About

I am an energetic, grounded and dexterous actor / writer from Iowa. After three short years in Chicago, I moved to NYC in 2013. 

Recent screen acting work includes: "A Crime to Remember" (IDTV) and "I Love You...But I Lied" (LMN), along with a handful of on-camera and voice over commercials for brands including Schick, Smirnoff and the NFL

I have a B.A. in Theatre Arts and Non-Fiction Writing from the University of Iowa. Currently, I am training with Anthony Abeson and have also studied clowning, comedic improvisation and movement with: The Funny School of Good Acting (Chris Bayes), Movement Theatre Studio (Norman Taylor, Justine Williams), UCB and The Second City. I am so proud to be part of the first graduating class at the Annoyance New York City and I continue to improvise with teams there and around the city. I have also been working one on one with Voice Over coach John McKinney, of Pomann Sound.

When I'm not writing scripts or working on auditions, you can probably find me rolling around on the floor or practicing my elephant noises, searching for that delicate balance between freedom and acceptable behavior.
