    About me

    Hi! I'm a recent undergrad, dual-degree graduate who pursued computer science and theatre, as well as a certificate in film studies. I have been acting since my freshmen year of college; however, I have heavily gone after film acting since the summer of 2015.

    Since that time, I have had the honor of being on so many talented student productions, not to mention a bunch of local independent films in the New England area. I have also directed a handful of my own short films and theatre productions. One of those shorts, called "Mirage", won the Fall 2016 48-Hour Film Festival at UMass Amherst. That film is currently being re-edited with the hopes of 2019 release online. Additionally, a student film I was a part of, entitled "Good Intentions" (and directed by Jerry Ma), won the Best Ensemble Cast at the 2017 15 Minutes of Fame Film Festival. So, technically, I'm an award-winning actor; although, I don't like to brag about it, as I (hopefully) have a long career ahead of me.

    As an actor, director, editor, video-grapher, not to mention a computer programmer, I'm looking to be a part of anyone's amazing project that is waiting to be made!
