A little about me

I'm an artist who is passionate about projects that shed light on unique (or unheard) perspectives, cross genre and boundary lines, and inspire love and empathy. I have a BFA in Drama (2018) from NYU Tisch School of the Arts, with training in New Studio on Broadway for musical theatre and Stonestreet Studios for film/TV acting.

 

After graduating, I worked on several short films and new musicals in NYC, and performed at Feinstein's/ 54 Below, The Duplex, and Two River Theater. In August 2019, I made my Off-Broadway debut in Rose's War (Anna) at Teatro LATEA as part of the RAVE Theater festival. During the pandemic, I have worked on virtual plays, filmed cover songs, written new music, got engaged, moved to Vegas, and have tried to stay sane and healthy! You can currently find me performing at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas as a resident vocalist in their Streetmosphere production featuring classical and pop Italian music.

I grew up in Las Vegas, NV in a blended Italian-American and Latino (New Mexican) family, and was inspired by my dad’s punk band (listen to their music here along with some of my originals), so I started singing, dancing and writing music/poetry at home at a young age. After discovering theater in 7th grade drama club, I then attended Las Vegas Academy of the Arts as a Theatre major where I decided to pursue acting professionally. Most of my teen years were also spent singing on worship bands at church.

At NYU, I produced and directed my own scripts (read and watch them here) and collaborated on new musicals written by students of the Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program, originating two title roles (Medusa and The Glass Girl). I debuted original music & lyrics in the Tisch Mainstage production of Polaroid Stories (Philomel) and ended my college career in New Studio on Broadway's production of HAIR (Dionne).

Keep up with my work here and on social media!
