I began my acting & cello career as a child in Eugene, Oregon. Performing was always a natural passion for me in school plays, symphonies, and chamber music. Thanks to an excellent public school system, teachers & mentors, I made it to Yale University to study theater, cello, and humanities.
After school I worked in NYC as a model, actor, cello performer/instructor, and storyteller. In life's twists & turns, my path took me away from performance for many years, while I became a lawyer in a career that taught me a ton through international law firms, judicial clerkships, and which culminated in a fab position as Director of Global Legal Operations & Innovation @NBCUniversal. However, all along the way as a lawyer I continued to perform as a cellist (classical music, rock pop band Sky-Pony, cover bands), as an actor and director, and be involved in supporting the arts, theater, and social justice causes.
Now it's time for me to return more to performing on stage & screen, and sharing my love for developing character and story. I'm excited for all the projects I'm already engaged in and all those to come. Let me know if you'd like to learn more, and thanks for visiting!
For Acting, although trained in theater, my focus now is in tv & film. I am also available for voice over acting and hosting.
For Cello, I play classical with a special affinity for chamber music, along with contemporary music in rock bands (especially Sky-Pony), cover bands, vocal soloists and choirs.
