About - UNDER CONSTRUCTION
Ever since I can remember, I’ve always loved performing. Born and raised in Queens, NY, I started dancing in my crib whenever music was playing. I’ve never stopped dancing; participating in plays since I was 12 and honing my talent all the way through high school where I attended LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts (the "Fame" school).
During my junior year at LaGuardia I was cast as Kenickie in Grease. Performing with others who shared my passion was a profound experience that lit a fire. The music, lights, and energy left no doubt that the stage would forever be my home. I knew in my heart, musical theater was my calling.
In the summer of 2017, our cast entertained thousands of Hershey Park patrons at their Chevrolet Music Box Theater's Dance Dance Dance: Heartbeat show, a high-energy dance show about love!
In 2018, I was cast in three very different roles at the Clear Space Theater Company: A phantom in "The Rocky Horror Show", George Banks in "Mary Poppins", and Ren McCormack in "Footloose*." It was an amazing experience!
While at Pace University**, I have been blessed with being cast in A Chorus Line, Jesus Christ Super Star, The Drowsy Chaperone and Sunday in the Park with George at the Schimmel Center and Schaeberle Studio theaters throughout my years there.
