    About me

    I'm a native North Carolinian living in London. I was a talkative, energetic and creative kid and started acting as a young teenager. I also come from a musical family, so started singing almost as soon as I could speak. My natural talent and a love for the craft led me to pursue acting training in college and I went directly into the professional market from there. I toured the US in various theatrical projects, joined Equity, acted in TV commercials and cut my teeth in film via Florida and New York before touring Europe in the Rocky Horror Show. I settled in London, where along side my acting I have pursued a career as a singer and voice over artist. I continue to build on this experience to the present and have a particular interest in re-establishing myself in film and TV.
