Having grown up in Queens, New York, I am proudly engaged in an ongoing quest to prove New Yorkers aren't inherently rude.  My parents' insistence on limiting childhood TV intake to classic movies and musicals explains a lot of things; including (but not limited to) my love of theatre, and why I've never seen "The Goonies" or "A Goofy Movie."

A proud graduate of Emerson College in Boston, I now call Manhattan home.  I've traveled the country playing Wendy Darling opposite Cathy Rigby in "Peter Pan," and as an understudy for Christine Daaé on tour with the spectacular new production of "The Phantom of the Opera."

Offstage, I'm a devout bookworm and foodie.  I have a silly talent for rhyming, which I use occasionally to write children's stories, whimsical poems, and parody songs for my friends and family.  

I'm supremely grateful for every opportunity that has come my way, and look forward to future adventures.
