Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to visit. I'm so happy you're here.
Learning about someone through the internet can be a strange and difficult thing, but I'll do my best to show you a glimmer of the kind of person, and actor I am.
Being the daughter of a mathematician and an artist, I took some time coming to acting and first explored the sciences. I was pursuing a career in medicine until half-way through college when I realized that maybe I was interested in helping people in a different way, and I started to look at the arts from an entirely new perspective. At that point, I'd completed a pediatric cardiology internship in Sweden and finished most of a biology and mathematics major, but I realized that I wasn't happy unless I was in the studio working. So I made the switch to Theater. I will always credit the few mentors I had at the time for encouraging me to follow my passions. With their guidance, I learned how to really listen to plays...This is how I fell in love with the world.
With rare exception, the theater is about everything else. I discovered through those texts I could forever be a student and learn more deeply what it means to be human. I hope that my work in storytelling, whether it is in theater or film, can give some salve to the world that no medicine could ever touch.
I live and work to play. I love my job more than I can say. And as I find myself working in different mediums, I continue to be under the tutelage of great voices of generations past and those present with us.
Fresh out of graduate school with my Masters of Fine Arts in Acting at the Yale School of Drama, and working with the fantastic people at Don Buchwald and Associates, I am aiming to do great work for great people. Collaboration is key to bringing to life whatever is on the page, and I live for that process. It is a gift to be an actor, and I want to share it with the world.
