ABOUT

I'm a DMV-based theater and film actor specializing in contemporary and classical work. I love, in no particular order: the intersection of tragedy and comedy; literature; philosophy and the history of ideas; food cultures around the world; psychology and science; formal rhetoric and debate; queer storytelling; and new play development. I hold an M.F.A. from The Shakespeare Theatre Company and am a graduate of The Studio Acting Conservatory and The University of Virginia. I'm also a sometime-writer with a background in magazine journalism and have worked and written for several national publications. In my youth, I trained for ten years in classical ballet, performing professionally with The Richmond Ballet in Richmond, VA. I was a dancer at birth—to quote T. Rex, I danced myself right out the womb.
