    About me

    For as long as I can remember I’ve had to loves, books and theatre. I would read books and act out my favorite scenes like I imagined them. Like Shakespeare says “ all the world’s a stage” and I plan to make this world mine, but I don’t mind sharing it. I want to give others what acting as given me, one show/character at a time. I love acting and I hope to continue to do so as long as I can and read a lot of great books and scripts along the way.
