Announcing Soul Series Productions!

While making Nun Habits, I realized that I wanted to share my passion and talents for filmmaking with others to help people tell their own stories. I'm excited to announce my newly formed independent film production company, Soul Series Productions. Our mission is to help bring communities together through diverse storytelling.

News & Updates - Acting

I'm Playing Megan in Nun Habits!

I have such confidence in Sonja Cirilo as a director and I cannot wait to work with her on this project. Even if it's my story, I have a lot to learn about Megan and I'm excited to dive in and explore her relationship to Catholicism as it relates to the other characters. 

I GRADUATED!

On Friday, December 15th, I graduated from Atlantic Acting School's 2.5-year full time conservatory. It has been a long, rewarding journey and I can't believe that it is coming to an end. Stay tuned for what's next for me!

I was in The Last Days of Judas Iscariot!

In October, I was in The Last Days of Judas Iscariot. I played Sister Glenna and Saint Matthew. During the production, I did 2 different accents in 7 minutes, where I played a Jewish Man and an Irish Nun. Below are some audience reviews from the show! 
“I was beyond thrilled by your work. You are all so connected, giving, courageous, risky, exciting and beautiful...I feel the greatest compliment an actor can give to another actor is to say that watching you made me want to ACT. Thank you for that!” — Jennifer Rau, Actor & Producer
“That was one of the best shows I’ve seen in Stage 2. Your commitment, depth, specificity and sense of play rival almost all the theater I’ve seen this year.” — Michael R Piazza, Actor & Director & Theater Educator
