I'm beginning to get more on-screen roles and, though it is a lot different from the stage I've grown to love, it's been so great to be able to work and see myself flourish in a different medium. I've played women, and occasionally men, of all ages. I've always been a bit of a parrot, able to catch on to and mimic any accent I hear within minutes. I also have experience with American Sign Language, which has opened up several opportunities that I would not otherwise have had access to. I'm great at dancing and picking up choreography so I have no problems with roles that involve music and movement, and as a singer, I'm always humming one tune or another to get it into my head. Overall, I'm a fast learner, so directors have favored me in the past as it doesn't take me very long to learn and commit to a role.

Modeling experience

Beginner, starting out

Though, my primary goal is to continue acting, I'm never opposed to dabbling in something new, and so far, I've found modeling to be a fun new adventure. Ideally, if I were to continue modeling, I'd like to use that platform to inspire those who perhaps don't have the conventional "look" and show people, especially teens, that there is no one way to be beautiful. There's beauty in all of us.

August 2016 - "Chronic Beauties" photoshoot. In association with Inviting women with chronic illnesses to share their stories in order to uplift and inspire others, as well as raise awareness about different chronic illnesses.

I've sung in theatre productions and cabaret shows and have always received wonderful feedback from my directors as well as my audiences. I'm pretty flexible as far as genres go, and am able to change my sound to better reflect what I'm singing.
