I was born in New York City and raised near Annapolis, Maryland. My love of acting and filmmaking began at a very young age. From putting on performances for my family, to watching endless amounts of movies and TV, I always knew I wanted to be in the industry somehow. When it was time for college, I moved back to New York City in 2004 to attend the New York Conservatory for Dramatic Arts and became a Mesiner graduate in 2007. Some classmates and I collaborated to create the web series "Recession Whores", which was the impetus of my production company "Rebel Lens Productions". Other friends and I also joined forces to form the comedy team "The Grape Dutches of York". Quickly, our troupe started creating short comedy films for YouTube and film festivals, while performing live comedy shows in various theaters throughout New York City. In 2016, I produced, edited, co-directed, and performed in the Off-Broadway show "Enchantment Park: in 3D & 4D". Enchantment Park’s two-month run at The PIT was sold out nearly every night while receiving rave reviews from numerous publications. Most recently, my last film "In for Business" was screened in global film festivals and was nominated numerous times including wins for Best Picture and Best Editor.
