Born on Starcross Drive, I'm from Birmingham, Alabama. My southern roots extend to a love of urban and mountain culture. New York City is now home. Here I'm building a career in television, film, stage, and the creation of new work.
I believe that through creative expression - dance, music, visual art, writing and acting - humans feel understood, connected and hopeful. Dance was my original form of expression. My parents are classical musicians. With broad vision, I hope to become a cultural ambassador of our country, working to ensure all children find the same sense of safety and solace through the arts that I did.
In my dreams all the people I hold near and dear live in one place - a sprawling estate with buffalo, a herd of English Cream Retrievers, and chocolate cake eaten daily.
